- Start by blending the cashew nuts for 1 minute in your food processor. The nuts will now turn into a flour.
- Then add the rest of the ingredients and blend it for another minute until you have a sticky dough.
- Form the mixture into little balls.
- Roll the balls in the coconut flakes.
The Good Stuff:
Cashews contain high level of Vitamin E, magnesium, and zinc - they are fairly high in fat, so don’t forget to share them!
Don’t like dates? Try other dried fruits, vary with spices, and add nuts and seeds.
Store leftover balls in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
