Date-macadamia nut balls couldn’t be easier! I didn’t use soaked nuts, but just the dry roasted ones from Costco. Some I rolled in shredded coconut- I thought they looked pretty, but the kids like them better without the coconut. The dates make them nice and sweet, the nuts make them a filling snack.
Makes 25 olive-sized balls
2 cups California dates, pitted (you can see the pits behind, they’re not hard to pit by hand)
1 cup roasted macadamia nuts
Pulse to desired consistency in the food processor (see below). Roll into balls, if desired roll in dried coconut. I keep them in the fridge- they’re not as soft when they’re cold. No baking, super easy!
