These Coconut Date Balls are quick and easy to make, plus they make a great healthy snack. No baking either. The inspiration for this recipe came from The Healthy Dish - so yummy and I extend a big thank you too! A great healthy snack to have in the middle of a busy day when you need some extra energy to keep you going!
This is a recipe where you must use a Food Processor to get a fine grind of all the ingredients.
2 cups chopped pitted Dates
1 cup Almond Meal
3 Tblsp. unsweetened Medium Shredded Coconut
1/2 tsp. Pure Almond Extract
1 Tblsp. Honey
2 Tblsp. Tahini butter (almond butter would be good too)
Unsweetened Medium Shredded Coconut - to roll the date balls in
Add the chopped dates and almond meal to the food processor. Blend until the dates are fine. Then add in the coconut, almond extract, honey and Tahini butter. Blend very well until it begins to come together and look moist.
Roll into balls, and then roll in shredded coconut.
This recipe makes about 20 Coconut Date Balls - enjoy!
