Grain-Free Date Balls
Recipe type: Dessert
  • 12 Medjool dates, pitted
  • ¾ cup natural nut butter
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • ½ cup almond flour
  • 2 Tablespoons honey
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Unsweetened shredded coconut (or coating of choice)
  1. Combine all ingredients in a food processor until the dates are smooth. The mixture should be crumbly but hold together when pressed into a ball.
  2. Use about 1½ teaspoons of mixture to form a ball, pressing and rolling it with your palms.
  3. Roll each ball in the shredded coconut or coating of choice.
  4. Chill before serving.
If the dates are dry, you should soak them in water before using them in this recipe. A little water can be added to the date ball mixture if needed.
