Ingredients

  • 0.5 cup pistachios hulled
  • 0.5 cup coconut shredded sweetened
  • 0.3 cup cocoa powder 
  • 0.3  salt with ¼ teaspoon and add more to taste
  • teaspoon vanilla 
  • 14  medjool dates pitted
  • 15 servings chocolate mixed dark shredded with a touch of coconut oil), cocoa powder, and coconut for topping

Equipment

  • food processor

Directions

  1. Soak the dates in warm water for about 10 minutes.
  2. Drain.
  3. In your food processor, combine pistachios, shredded coconut, cocoa powder, and salt. Pulse until finely ground.
  4. Add in vanilla and the softened mejool dates and pulse until a ball forms.
  5. Roll into bite sized balls (mine were about tablespoons) and dip immediately in to cocoa powder, shredded coconut, or my personal favorite dark chocolate that's been melted with a *hint* of coconut oil.
  6. Enjoy immediately! Store the leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge.
  7. NOTES
  8. Cocoa powder is extremely bitter, so make sure you like the taste before rolling all of them in cocoa powder. My personal favorites are the shredded coconut or dark chocolate! :)
