Preheat oven to 350°F. Line one baking sheet with parchment paper.
Place coconut and almonds onto the prepared baking sheet and bake for 5 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven and allow to cool.
In a small saucepan mix sugar, water, and salt. Bring the mixture to a simmer mixing constantly until all the sugar dissolves. Simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and add vanilla extract to the mixture. Set aside and allow the mixture to cool down.
In a large bowl, combine toasted coconut, almonds, oats, and almond butter. Add the sugar syrup and mix until all ingredients are evenly coated. At this point, test the mixture for temperature, if it is still warm, allow the mixture to reach room temperature before adding the chocolate chips.
Using a small ice scream scoop, scoop balls out of the mixture. Using your hands, gently form the mixture into balls. Store in an airtight container.
