Put pitted dates into food processor along with the coconut oil, cinnamon, and coconut. Pulse a minute or two to finely chop. Transfer the mixture to a large bowl; add the chopped almonds and knead into dough. If it's a bit sticky, rub a teaspoon of coconut oil onto your hands.

Once kneaded, pinch off a piece the site of a marshmallow and roll into a ball between your palms and then roll around in the ground almonds or cocoa powder to coat.
