Prep time: Cook time: Total time:

Ingredients

  • [3/4] cup walnuts
  • 12 medjool dates, pitted
  • [1/2] cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup pistachios, ground
  • 1 cup coconut flakes

Directions

Preheat the oven to 450ºF.

Evenly spread walnuts on a baking sheet, and toast for 5 minutes.

In a food processor fitted with a chopping blade, blend toasted walnuts for 30 seconds or until evenly ground. Transfer walnuts to a medium bowl.

In the food processor, blend medjool dates and butter for 2 minutes until mixture resembles a paste.

Add date paste to ground walnuts, and mix to combine.

Place ground pistachios in a small bowl, and place coconut flakes in a separate small bowl.

Spray a bit of cooking spray on your hands, and spoon about 2 tablespoons date mixture into your hands and roll to form a ball. Immediately roll date ball into either ground pistachios or coconut flakes.

Place each date ball in a mini cupcake liner, and serve.

Tasty Tip
If you want the date balls to become a bit firmer, refrigerate them for 30 minutes before serving.
