In a high-speed blender or food processor, combine your almonds, one cup of coconut and dates. Pulse until combined, regularly scraping down the sides. Add your cocoa powder and continue blending until a thick dough remains.
If the dough is too crumbly, add some liquid (water or milk), one tablespoon at a time, until the batter is thick and smooth.
Transfer your energy bites dough into a mixing bowl. On a large plate, add the remaining half cup of coconut. Using your hands, form 12 small balls of dough, rolling each one in the coconut until completely covered.
Place energy balls on a plate and refrigerate for at least an hour, or until firm.
Coconut chocolate energy bites should be stored in the fridge, covered. They can also be stored in the freezer.
