D I R E C T I O N S
In a dry blender or food processor, pulse sunflower seeds, raisins, and coconut flakes until broken up. Stop the blender to loosen the mixture with a rubber spatula as needed. Do not over-blend. The mixture can still have whole pieces in it.
Pour the crumbly mixture into a large bowl and mix in remaining ingredients until a doughy consistency is reached. Take a tablespoon of dough and roll into 1-inch balls. Add a small amount of water as needed.
Coat the balls in the cacao powder. They can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to 2 weeks, or stored in the freezer for up to one month.
