- 1 -2 lbs organic medjool dates (go organic here as dates are HIGHLY sprayed)
- 1/2 cup – 1 cup chopped cashews
- 1 cup of shredded organic coconut
- Slice open dates and remove seeds. Mash by hand or use a food processor or blender. You will need to add a little water and mash in small amounts if you use a machine. If you mash by hand just imagine working into a dough, much like play dough.
- Put the mashed dates into a bowl or on a cutting board and add in the chopped cashews. Mix in coconut if you wish. Finally, shape, sprinkle with shredded coconut, chill and enjoy!
- Dark chocolate chips are a good addition or carob chips.
