Raw Balls

(The name is not attractive but the result are)

Thank you Lisa Cohen for sharing this recipe that everyone loves!!

(i like to do it for Shabbat since its vegan and we don’t use any diary with our meat meal)

• 1/2 cup walnuts

• 1/2 cup pitted dates

• 1/2 cup raw carob or cocoa powder

• 1/2 cup maple syrup

• 1/2 cup almond butter

• 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

• 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt

• 1/2 cup whole almonds

• 1 – 2 cups shredded unsweetened coconut

Place walnuts in a food processor and process until coarsely ground. Add the dates and pulse until well combined with the nuts. Add the cocoa powder, syrup, almond butter, vanilla and salt. Process until the mixture is thick and smooth. Add the almonds and pulse a few times until combined. There should be some almond chunks remaining.

Form the mixture into balls and roll in coconut. Store in freezer.

Take it from the freezer right before you serve it!
