Healthy Snacks: Coconut Cocoa Date Balls

I never even tried dates until last year. I always looked at them as a weird, amorphous food akin to prunes. They are now one of my favorite snacks – while they are great to eat on their own, they are even better when made into these babies. These are super easy to make and last in the fridge for about two weeks, so make plenty to have on hand for a healthy snack!

Coconut Cocoa Date Balls

  • 2 cups organic dates, pitted
  • 1.5 cups organic raw walnuts
  • 1/2 cup + 1/2 cup organic non-sweetened coconut (for rolling in)
  • 3 tsp organic vanilla
  • 1/2 cup organic raisins
  • 4 tablespoons water
  • 2 tbs raw cocoa powder

Put all ingredients in food processor and pulse until smooth. Roll into balls and roll in  coconut flakes. Enjoy!
