My friend posted a link to a page about making healthy energy balls. I tried them tonight and they came out great...especially if you don't eat many sweets. Andrew didn't think they were sweet enough. Go figure!
10 dried dates - pour boiling water over the top for about 3 minutes
1 tsp cocoa powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 c walnuts
Optional: additional cocoa powder or unsweetened coconut for rolling
In a Vitamix or food processor, chop the nuts until they are a fine meal but not butter. Add the cocoa and salt. Mix. Drain the dates (save the liquid for cooking with later) and add. Process until the mixture holds together. Roll into small balls (bite sized) and roll in cocoa powder (if you like them dark) and/or unsweetened coconut.
