Make these three-ingredient coconut date balls with your kids, and then place them on a tray with after dinner mints and chocolate truffles for a decadent and healthy dessert mid-holiday.
- 1/2 cup pitted and chopped dried dates
- 2/3 cup cashews
- 1/2 cup shredded, unsweetened coconut
Add the dates, cashews and almonds to the base of a food processor fitted with a chopping blade.
Pulse until the dates and nuts have formed a sticky crumb.
Add the coconut and pulse to combine.
Remove from the food processor and combine mixture into a large ball.
Cover and place in the fridge to harden, about 2 hours.
Pinch off 2 tablespoons worth of dough and roll into balls.
Will keep in the fridge for 10 to 14 days.
