Coconut Date Balls

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.
