Chocolate Pumpkin Spice Date Truffles

Yet another, but delicious, date truffle recipe :)

15 pitted dates
1/4 cup coconut oil - not melted
1/4 cup raw sunflower seeds
1/4 cup raw pepitas (shelled pumpkin seeds)
1/4 cup rolled oats 
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 (heaping) teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg 
Splash of vanilla almond milk 

Combine all ingredients except for almond milk in food processor/high power blender until well mixed. Add splash of milk and blend again for another minute or so. Roll tablespoon size scoops in palms until a ball forms. Place in fridge for at least 20 minutes to allow coconut oil to harden, sealing all ingredients up in a delicious 70 calorie snack! Makes about 20 truffles :)
