Vegan Date Balls Recipe
Date Balls are made with the best variety of ingredients - sweet, crunchy and chocolaty.
Servings 48 Balls
- ¾ cup Sunflower Seeds - ground
- ½ cup Dates - pitted, chopped
- ½ cup walnuts - chopped
- ½ cup cacao powder - unsweetened
- ½ cup maple syrup
- ½ cup Almond Butter - creamy
- ½ cup rolled oats - old fashioned, there are also gluten free oats
- 6 ounces coconut for coating - unsweetened
So simple and delicious.
Grind the sunflower seeds in your Food Processor
Chop up the dates and walnuts.
Mix all ingredients in a large bowl.
My method of preparation is that I divide the mixture in half.
Use your hands. It makes everything so easy.
Divide the mixture in half and then half again ... and so on and so on until you get 48 sections.
Roll into balls with the palm of your hands.
You can always pinch out a little from the balls that are a little bit larger if you would like to make more.
Roll each ball in the shredded coconut.
Put on a cookie sheet and let freeze for about to hours.
Remove and serve.
They will also freeze for up to 2 months.
I keep mine in the freezer and pick one out whenever I want a snack.
You can freeze them in any of the methods shown in my article https://veganinthefreezer.com/preparing-food-for-the-freezer/ They defrost quickly so it really doesn't take any planning.
In fact, you can eat them right out of the freezer. They aren't too hard at all.
