Combine all dry ingredients in a food processor and mix. In another bowl, combine coconut oil, agave and vanilla. Add to the dry ingredients in the food processor and blend for about 1 minute. Out of the batter, form balls of the size of a cherry between the palms of your hands. Roll the ball in your preferred coating and place them in mini cupcake liners. Keep in fridge until serving.
