Fruit and Nut Balls

This paleo treat is perfect for an afternoon pick-me-up, a before or after work-out boost, in lunches, or just because…..

What you will need: food processor,  raw nuts, dried fruit, unsweetened coconut, or cocoa powder.

Just remember a cup of nuts to a cup of dried fruit. For our Grand Opening Party we used:

1 c. almonds

1 c. walnuts

1 c. pecans

1 c. apricots

1 c. dates

1 c. pomegranate infused cranraisins

Blend nuts and transfer to a bowl. Blend dried fruit and add to nuts. You can add a dash of juice at this point but the mixture will be sticky to the touch. Use a teaspoon or tablespoon (depending on portion size preference) scoop flattened and roll into balls. Transfer balls into a bowl of unsweetened coconut or cocoa powder to coat. These paleo treats will store well in a sealed container at room temperature or refrigerated. I guarantee you will have no waste.
