Power Date Balls

After posting pictures of my kid’s lunches this week, I was asked multiple times for this recipe. 🙂  Let me start off by saying I do NOT like dates, but these are amazing!  So if you’re like me, and can’t stand dates, this is a great way to still eat this nutritious food but only taste chocolate. 😉

 

What you’ll need:

1 cup Medjool dates, pits removed

2 cups walnuts

1/2 cup chocolate chunks

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

1/4 teaspoon sea salt

1 teaspoon water (if necessary)
