Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 Cup Dates
  • 1 Cup Almond Flour
  • ¼ Cup Raw Almonds, chopped
  • ¼ Cup Shredded Coconut

  • ¼ tsp salt (optional)

Instructions

  1. Add the almonds to a food processor and pulse until they are broken into small pieces.  Set aside into a shallow dish.
  2. Place the dates in the food processor and blend until they are smooth and form a ball.  Add 1-2 Tablespoons of almond milk. 
  3. Place the paste in a bowl and add the almond flour and shredded coconut. Stir well to combine. The result should be a sticky paste. 
  4. Roll the dates into 10 balls and then roll them into the chopped almonds.

Notes

If using dry dates, presoak in warm water for 30 minutes before using.
