  1. Add all ingredients to a large bowl and stir, then use hands to combine. Roll into approximately 1 tbsp balls with your hands. Slightly wetting hands will help keep the dough from sticking.
  2. Grab and go!
  3. Optional: roll balls in combo of ground almonds and graham cracker crumbs.

*To soften and puree dates, let them sit in a bowl of hot water for about 20-minutes. Then drain water and mash dates with fork or potato masher.

Dietitian Tip: Make a full batch of these and keep in the freezer. Bring 2 or 3 for a quick snack on the go for after a workout, hours of running errands or a long car-ride.
