Power Protein Balls

I made these up for a quick & healthy snack that would also satisfy my extreme sweet tooth.  I am not usually a huge fig fan but they add the perfect amount of sweetness! I can't eat just one!!
16 oz raw cashews or cashew pieces
12 oz Black Mission figs, stems removed
1/4 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 tbsp coconut oil
3 tbsp almond butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
Put all ingredients in food processor and blend until ingredients combine and start "clumping" together. Line a baking sheet with wax paper.  Roll mixture into 1-11/2 inch balls.  Place on baking sheet.  Once you have made all of the balls place baking sheet into freezer for 2-3 hours to flash freeze them.  If you went ahead and put them in a bag they would all clump together!  Remove and now you can transfer into a freezer bag and place back in the freezer.  I pull 1-2 out as I want for a quick snack. My kids love these too!!
