cookie dough balls four ways! ( raw + vegan)

One of my first posts ever was a recipe for date balls. It included pictures of my 11 or 12 year old self making them too. My family makes these allll the time for quick snacks or out-the-door energy bites. Since I’ve grown in both age and cooking/baking confidence, I’ve experimented a lot more with the recipes I make often, and came up with three more DELICIOUS variations of the date ball recipe. I named it cookie dough balls this time, not only to get your attention, but because these truly taste like it. Especially the chocolate mint ones. Basically what you need for the base is just a cupful of nuts, a cup of sweet dried fruit ( normally dates), and then just add ins! It’s super versatile so feel free to be creative and change it up as you feel like it!

  • In a food processor, pulse together all ingredients of chosen flavor, blending until the “dough” forms together in your hands. You may need to add a couple tablespoons of water to make it form better. After it’s blended, roll into small balls between the palms of your hands and place in a glass container. Store in the fridge. Enjoy!
