Date Energy Balls


Date Energy Balls

Ingredients: *Use organic ingredients when possible

2 Cups Walnuts, or other nut/seed of choice

1 Cup Shredded unsweetened

2 Cups Soft Medjool dates, pitted

½ tsp Sea salt

1 tsp Vanilla Extract


Instructions:

• In a large food processor fitted with

an “S” blade, process the walnuts

and coconut until crumbly.

• Add in the dates, vanilla and sea salt

and process again until a sticky,

uniform batter is formed. (You can

add a tablespoon of coconut oil,

only if needed to help the mixture

come together) You don’t want to

over process, or the batter will

become oily, so process until

crumbly, but sticky when pressed

between your fingers.

• Scoop dough by heaping

tablespoons, and then roll between

your hands to form balls.


Arrange on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, then place in the fridge or

freezer to set for at least 30 minutes before serving. Store in a sealed container in

the fridge for up to a week, or in the freezer for an even longer shelf life.


*For a gourmet-looking truffle, you can roll them in shredded coconut or cacao powder

before chilling.
