Quick Tips:

You can use a variety of nuts and seeds. You can also roll the balls in sesame seeds, flaxseeds, cacao powder or hemp hearts.

No almonds?

Use walnuts, pecans or cashews instead.

Storage

Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week or freezer for up to a month. If storing in the freezer, ensure to separate the balls with parchment paper so they don't stick to each other. Remove from freezer 10-15 minutes and allow balls to soften before eating.


Nutritional Highlights:

Dates

Although high in natural sugars, dates are also incredibly nutritious. They are high in fiber, antioxidants, potassium and magnesium.
