  1. In a food processor, combine dates, tahini, chocolate, coconut oil, vanilla, and 2 generous pinches sea salt until a smooth ball forms.

  2. Pulse coconut and sunflower seeds into the mixture briefly until distributed evenly.

Recipe Notes

*Dates must be very soft before you puree them. If you do not purchase high-quality soft dates, you must soak your dates in warm water for 30 minutes prior to adding to the food processor.
