Using a small cookie scoop, or your hands, roll into 1" balls. Or smaller depending on what size you want.
** There has been some confusion about the steel cut oats. There are two kinds of steel cut oats; regular and the quick, 3 minute steel cut oats. Use the quick, 3 minute ones. DO NOT COOK before making the balls. Simply add the steel cut oats straight from the container. I have included a picture of the steel cut oats in the post, go there to see what it looks like if you're still wondering.
If wanted, pulse/chop coconut in a food processor for a finer texture (instead of the long strands).
I have also used 1/2 cup sliced almonds + 1/2 cup coconut and put those in the food processor for a few pulses. We actually prefer these with half coconut and half sliced almonds.
Be sure and use the quick, 3 minute cook steel cut oats. The regular, whole grain steel cut oats are too tough and crunchy. I promise, they're not good in this recipe.
