No-Bake Brownie Balls

Here is one of the three dozen brownie balls we made today. This is another simple, fun recipe. The kids can help with this too. Bradley loves to roll them into balls, and then roll them in the coconut flakes. He does a really good job too!

Brownie Balls

  • 1 cup of walnuts

  • 1 cup of dates (soaked in water for about 20 minutes, and pitted)

  • 1/4 cocoa powder or carob powder

  • 1/2 cup or so of shredded coconut

Place all the ingredients in a food processor and blend well. You may need to add a bit of water to make sure they stick, just don't add too much or they get really sticky (I like to save the water the dates were soaking in and use that). Roll into bite-size balls, and then roll in the shredded coconut. These can be eaten fresh from the fridge or the freezer.

You can use any kind of nuts you like. I've made these with pecans, hazelnuts, cashews, and almonds. You can do a mix too if you like!
