Organic Raw Nut And Date Balls

on July 27, 2014

 

Sunday mornings are no different for me than any other morning.. no sleeping in for this momma!  At 6:30am, Luna and I were making a batch of raw date and nut balls.  Healthy, delicious and easy to make for toddlers and adults.

Here’s the recipe:

Ingredients:

2 cups Medjool dates 

1/2 cup organic raw walnuts

1/2 cup organic raw almonds

1 1/2 cups organic shredded coconut

1 teaspoon organic ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon organic pure vanilla extract or 1/2 vanilla bean ground

Directions:

Place nuts in a small bowl or large glass and add distilled water until nuts are covered, soak overnight

Next day, drain nuts and let sit

Remove pit in dates and place in a bowl, pour boiling hot water into bowl until entire dates are submerged, let sit for 30 minutes then drain

In a processor, add nuts and pulse until finely chopped

Add 1/4 cup shredded coconut, cinnamon, vanilla, and pulse until mixed well

Add soaked dates, a little at a time, processing until you have a paste

Place remaining shredded coconut into a bowl, roll paste into small balls and coat with shredded coconut, place on parchment paper or a large flat container to freeze in (I used a large glass pyrex container)

That’s it!

 

If you would rather by raw balls similar to these and other flavored raw balls, my very good friend sells them on her site.  Go to thefitgreengoddess.com and her product is called “Glow Bites”, they are soooo delicious!

 

Healthy treats for a health lifestyle!
