Power Balls

Things to Grab:

4 dates, pits removed

1 cup walnuts

1/2 cup macadamia nuts

2 tablespoons coconut oil

1/2 cup fresh or defrosted blueberries (fresh work best)

1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut

In 2020, I’m leaning into Paleo!

These little balls of protein are packed with tons of healthy fat and are the perfect snack when you're on the run.  They're also a healthy way to satisfy a sweet tooth.

Change the flavor of Nutty Blueberry by using different types of nuts each time you make them.  Other variations include adding cinnamon, dark chocolate, or dried fruit instead of fresh.

Pulverize dates in a food processor until a paste forms, (about 40 seconds).  Add walnuts and macadamia nuts and blend until very finely chopped, about 35 seconds.  With the blade still running, drizzle in coconut oil and stop as soon as the oil is blended in.  Scrape the batter into a bowl and stir in blueberries and 1/2 cup of coconut.  Form the batter into round balls, then roll in leftover shredded coconut.  Pop a few in your mouth immediately, and refrigerate the rest for snacking later!
