Cardamom & Golden Raisin Oatmeal Cookie Bites

- 1.5 C old fashioned oats
- 1/4 C golden raisins
- 1/4 C dark chocolate chips

In the bowl of a food processor, add the coconut flakes and oats. Blend until a fine powder. Add the golden raisins and chocolate chips; blend again until roughly chopped. Add the remaining ingredients and blend until well combined. Taste and adjust flavors as desired. Using a 2 tsp-sized scoop, scoop the mixture and then roll between palms to create a smooth sphere. Continue until all dough is rolled. Placed balls in fridge to firm up and store in fridge or freezer.
