Taste: rich and chocolatey and the coconut oil in them makes them truly delicious.

I make my own almond meal by making almond milk and using whats left. Its easy. Soak a cup of almonds in water in the fridge over night. Pour out excess water. Add almonds and 2 cups of water to a blender (I use a bar mix in a big cup). Blend together. Strain the milk. Done. Whats left is your almond meal for you coconut balls and you have some lovely organic fresh almond milk for your tea.
