Recipe of the Week – Nut Balls

A quick, easy and healthy treat!

NUT BALLSLast summer I served these at the Lasqueti market with fresh pressed juice. Balls and Juice. Or a BJ combo. Sales were good.

  • 1 cupish of nuts. Almonds, cashews or walnuts or a mix.
  • 1/2 cupish of dates. Add them into the food processor slowly so they don’t get all stuck
  • Fat squirt of maple syrup
  • A bunch of chocolate chips, use your own discretion (cuz everything is better with chocolate)
  • 1/2 cupish dried fruit. I like dried cherries. Craisens are good, dried apricots are good too.
  • Shot of vanilla
  • Pinch of salt
  • Add anything else you desire! Cocoa powder, spices like ginger or cinnamon or even a tiny bit of cardamon and clove to make them chia like. The options are endless! Make this recipe your own! Add fancy things like guarana powder or hemp seeds, oats, sesame seeds, the left-over bits in the bottom of your sink, or dried coconut flakes! Literally — Anything!
