Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups almonds
  • 1/2 cup pecans
  • 3/4 cup medjool dates about 10, pitted
  • 1/2 cup dried apple slices
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • pinch of sea salt

Instructions

  • Process nuts: Place almonds and pecans into food processor and pulse until they are chopped into small pieces. Place nut mixture in a bowl and set aside.
  • Process dates: Put dates into the food processor and pulse until a paste forms (the dates will probably form into a sticky ball).
  • Add nuts back into the processor with the dates.
  • Add in dried apples, raisins, cinnamon and sea salt. Pulse until everything is well combined.
  • Form balls: Scoop dough from food processor with your hands or a cookie scoop and form into small balls using your hands.
  • To store: Place balls into a sealed storage container and store in the fridge for 1 weeks or the freezer for 3 months.

Notes

  • Hard/dry dates: If your dates are hard and dry, you can soak them in warm water for 10-15 minutes to soften. Just drain them well before using.
  • Crumbly dough: If your dough seems too crumbly to stick together after processing even when squeezing it together with your hands, you can try adding a couple more dates or adding 1 teaspoon of water at a time until the mixture starts to hold together well enough to form into balls.
