Craving for something sweet but healthy?
Try this super easy, healthy and nutritious date and nut balls.
1 cup of pitted Medjool dates or any other dates as per your preference
1/2 cup of walnuts (you can adjust as per your desire)
Dry coconut flakes for coating the balls
2- 3 tbsp of hot water (optional)
1) Remove the pits of the dates and roughly chop them. Medjool dates are really soft and moist. If the dates you are using is a bit on the hard side, then soak the dates in 2 - 3 tbsp of water for 15- 20 mins.
2) In a blender/food processor, add the walnuts and pulse it 2- 3 times until the walnuts are roughly chopped but are not in a powdered form. You should be able to bite into the walnuts along with the dates.
3) Add the dates and pulse until the dates and walnuts combine to form a dough.
4) Make small balls of the dough and roll it in dry coconut flakes. Refrigerate for half an hour to one hour until set.
You can also try another variation of date and almonds, rolled in crushed pistachios or you can also try date with pistachios coated with almond flakes.
