In a large mixing bowl, mix almond butter, agave, vanilla and cocoa powder together. Add 1 tablespoon of warm water.
Add oats, coconut, chia and chocolate chips and stir until evenly coated. Add dried cherries. At this point, if mixture still doesn't stick together, add water as needed. Transfer mixture to refrigerator to chill until nearly set and easier to handle.
Lay parchment paper on a cookie sheet. Remove mixture from refrigerator and shape into 1- 1 ½ -inch balls and space apart on cookie sheet. ** I find it helpful to wet my hands when I am forming the mixture into balls.
Freeze for 4-6 hours or overnight.
Then transfer to freezer bag to store ( I store in freezer for up to 2 months). Thaw when ready to eat (you can pop them in the microwave for 10- 15 seconds) OR throw them in a lunch bag in the morning and they'll be ready to eat by lunch time!
