INGREDIENTS:

[if !supportLists]

[if !supportLists]

-2 cups walnuts, pecans, or other nut/seed of choice

-1 cup shredded unsweetened coconut

-2 cups soft Medjool dates, pitted

-2 tablespoons coconut oil

-1/2 teaspoon sea salt

-1 teaspoon vanilla extract

INSTRUCTIONS:

[if !supportLists]

1. In a large food processor fitted with an "S" blade, process the walnuts and coconut until crumbly. Add in the dates, coconut oil, vanilla and sea salt and process again until a sticky, uniform batter is formed.

2. Scoop the dough by heaping tablespoons, then roll between your hands to form balls. Arrange them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, then place in the freezer to set for at least an hour before serving. Store the balls in a sealed container in the fridge for up to a week, or in the freezer for an even longer shelf life. (I prefer them frozen, myself!)

3. For a gourmet-looking truffle, you could also roll them in shredded coconut or cocoa powder before chilling
