Description

When you start the mixture in the food processor, it will seem like it’s not going to work. Let the machine keep running as it can take about a minute and the mixture will start to naturally hold together like cookie dough.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup raw or roasted almonds OR cashews
  • 1 cup pitted Medjool or Deglet Noir dates
  • 1 cup dried cranberries, apples, cherries, apricots, raisins, OR prunes
  • shredded unsweetened coconut, optional

Instructions

  1. Place ingredients into a medium bowl.
  2. Cover with hot water. Let sit for at least 10 minutes and up to 30.
  3. Drain.
  4. Add to a food processor and grind the ingredients into a batter, starting on low and working up to high. You will likely need to let the machine run for about a minute until the batter starts to hold together like cookie dough. Stop and scrape down the sides of the bowl if needed to help the mixture move thoroughly.
  5. Use a 1-tablespoon measuring spoon to portion out balls. Roll in shredded unsweetened coconut if desired.
  6. Serve, or store in the fridge for a future snack. 

Notes

Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 month.

Make smaller balls if desired.

If the mixture is sticky when you try to roll it into balls, wash hands after every few or chill the dough for a few minutes. (I’ve never had an issue, but some fruit is stickier than others!)
