You will have a sticky glob to put into a medium size bowl.

Then use hands to knead rest to a 'rollable' consistency.
Make 1/2 inch balls and place them on a cookie sheet.

Cool and serve.
They are quite delicious (you'll like them too), and they're just right size for my Scarlet Macaw,' Coconut', to hold.

Bake 12 minutes at 350.
I divided 'dough' into three portions, added some chopped walnuts to one part, some coconut to one part, and stirred some extra spices (nutmeg, ginger) to third part, so had three 'kinds' of cookies from one batch.
Bobber doesn't like almonds in mixed nuts that I get, so I have been pulling them out and those were what I ground up to thicken dough.
You could use whatever kind of nuts that are not 'favorite' at house.
