Ingredients

Ingredients

16 Natural Delights® Medjool dates, pitted and roughly chopped

1 cup raw almonds

1/2 cup unsweetened desiccated coconut (+ 1/2 cup more for coating the date balls)

1/3 cup cashew butter (or your favorite nut butter)

3 tablespoons cacao powder

1 tablespoon chia seeds

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/4 teaspoon salt (optional)

Preparation

Preparation

1. Add the dates to the bowl of a food processor and pulse for 15 - 20 seconds. Add the nuts and pulse until just combined, scrapping down the sides of the bowl as you go. Add the remaining ingredients, continue to pulse scraping down the sides of the bowl as you go. When blended, the nuts should be the size of large pebbles of sand.

2. Turn the mixture onto parchment paper, form into a roll using the parchment paper. 

3. Slice into roughly 12 pieces and roll into balls. 

4. Poor 1/2 cup of the coconut onto a clean piece of parchment paper and roll each ball in the coconut. You can also add some powdered sugar here to make the balls appear more white (totally optional).

5. Pile coconut covered balls into a bowl and place plastic spiders on top. Spooky!
