Paleo and Vegan Almond-Cashew Date Balls

Prep Time 15 mins
Total Time 15 mins
Servings 7 servings (3 balls per serving)

Ingredients
  

  • 15 dates seeds removed
  • 1/4 cup raw or dry roasted almonds unsalted
  • 1/4 cup raw or dry roasted cashews unsalted
  • 1 tbsp raw honey or maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp pink himalayan sea salt
  • 1/3 cup enjoy life mini chocolate chips (optional)
  • 1/3 cup raw shredded coconut flakes (optional)

Instructions
 

  • Take your nuts and rough chop them in the food processor. Then set aside in a medium sized bowl. Mix in salt and chocolate chips if you are including those.
  • Put the deseeded dates, honey, coconut oil and vanilla extract into the food processor and process into a paste.
  • Add paste to the nut mix and mix well either with your hands or a rubber spatula.
  • Once well mixed, with your clean hands, form into bouncy ball sized balls. I like to roll mine in the shredded coconut to keep them from sticking together in the container later.
  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge.

Notes

Now...for the sake of honesty, I am assuming these would take at most 15 minutes to make. However, I had a phone call and a toddler that interrupted the process. What shouldn't have taken very long took me a lot longer.
Enjoy!
