Care of Amy Symington 




  • 3/4 cup raw cashews
  • 10 medjool dates
  • 3 tbsp shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 1 tbsp orange zest
  • 2 tbsp agave or maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp cardamom

Directions:  Make certain all pits are removed from dates. Place all ingredients into a food processor and process until it becomes a firm dough, about 2 minutes. Remove sticky dough and form into bite size balls by rolling between your hands. Roll in extra coconut for garnish (if desired) or leave as is.      Refrigerate for 15-20 minutes before serving to allow the balls to firm up. Makes 10-12 balls.
