Maple Walnut Date Balls

A combination of flavors that is outstanding PLUS is a good option for snack break or breakfast. These date balls are a family favorite. Our debate is over which coating option is better. You'll have to let me know which one is your favorite.


Maple Walnut Date Balls


Maple walnut date balls
Dates + toasted walnuts + maple = yummy!

Yield: makes 16 balls

Ingredients


2 cups walnuts, toasted, plus

1/4 cup walnuts for coating

3/4 cup old-fashioned oats

1/4 cup desiccated coconut

3/4 cup Medjool dates, pitted (or use other favorite soft dates)

3 tbsp maple syrup

2 tsp vanilla

1/2 tsp salt

For coating:

1/4 cup walnuts, toasted, finely chopped and/or

1/4 cup desiccated coconut


Directions


Add 2 cups walnuts, oats, coconut dates, maple syrup, vanilla and salt to a food processor. Blend using longish pulses until mostly smooth and the ingredients form a sticky mass that will form into cohesive balls, about 20 - 25 pulses.


Put the coating options (finely chopped walnuts and the desiccated coconut) on separate plates. Have ready a container nearby for the completed balls.

Using a medium cookie scoop, form the dough into 16 balls and roll each ball in the diced walnuts and/or the coconut to coat. Note: It's easier if your hands are a little damp.


Store the energy balls in an airtight container in the fridge for a week, or in the freezer for up to three months. Enjoy!
