  • Food Processor


  • 40g (¼ cup) Walnuts Roughly Chopped
  • 60g (½ cup) Dates I used medjool dates (around 5)
  • 1 tbsp Peanut Butter Natural
  • 2 tbsp Desiccated Coconut Unsweeetened


  • Place the walnuts in a food processor and blitz until they are finely crushed.
  • Add the dates and peanut butter and continue to blend to a paste consistency.
  • Scoop out 1 tbsp amounts and roll into balls. Roll in the coconut to coat.
  • Enjoy at room temperature or place in the refrigerator to harden.


DATES: Fresh and sticky dates work best. If your dates are dry then you will need to soak them in boiling water to soften. If they are too dry the mixture will not stick together.  
OPTIONAL ADD IN SUGGESTIONS: This is a great base recipe and perfect for added extras, why not try adding one (or more) of the following  Spices (such as vanilla, cinnamon, ginger, cardamom etc), cacao or cocoa powder, coconut, hemp seeds.
