Date & Nut Balls

This is an easy and healthy snack, especially for kids! Adapted from a Catherine McCord recipe seen in Parents Magazine.


Date & Nut Balls

Ingredients

1/2 cup GF oats
1/2 cup walnuts
1/4 cup cashews
1/4 cup pitted dates, chopped
2 Tbls agave syrup
1 tsp coconut oil
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
3 Tbls shredded unsweetened coconut


Method

Preheat oven to 350F/180C.
On a baking sheet place nuts and oats and bake for 10mins and let cool.
In a food processor add nuts and oats and blitz until all blended and chopped finely.
Add in all other ingredients except for the shredded coconut and process until all mixed well.
Take small amounts of the mixture and roll into a ball in your hand.
Dredge in coconut shreds and leave to cool.
How many balls you make depends on how big they are.
Keep in sealed container for a few days.
