For those of you getting on the new years resolution band wagon of healthy living, here’s a sweet treat filled with lots of nutrients: walnut date cranberry balls.
Dried cranberries can be found at the Food Lovers on Msasani road or you can substitute any other dried fruit, preferably one that is a bit tart.
1⁄2 cup dried cranberries
1⁄2 cup pitted whole dates
3⁄4 cup walnuts or cashews (unsalted)
3 tbs of almond flour or protein powder for you health nuts
pinch of salt
Servings: roughly 12 balls
Dice your fruit and place into a food processor with your dates until you have a paste consistency. If you don’t have a food processor, you can still make this recipe, but they’ll be more coarse! Add your fruit and dates to a bowl.
Separately blend your nuts in your processor. Do not blend into a nut-butter! You want the walnuts to be finely chopped.
Add all ingredients to your bowl and knead together with your hands.
Roll and firmly press them into 1⁄2-1 inch snack balls!
Can be stored in the fridge or freezer for several weeks.
