Raw Chocolate Almond Butter Balls

Fancy title, eh?  I see things like this in recipe books and online and decided to create a "raw" version.  And then I came up with a fabulous name for them.
I'm sure there is a much better version out there but honestly, these aren't too shabby.

1 c. organic oats, soaked several hours (not too much water!)
1/2 c. raw almond butter
2/3 c. shredded coconut
1/4 c. flax seed, grind it (that will be almost 1/2 c. once you grind)
1/3 c. raw honey (I used honey from my own bees!)
1/2 c. raw cocoa powder
1 t. vanilla

Stir this all together and then roll into balls.  Chill and enjoy.  Or just eat a couple spoonfuls as you are making it.  Either way, enjoy!
