I used pecans for the outer part of these sweet treats but you could easily substitute walnuts, pistachios, or toasted hazelnuts.
Nutty Date Bites
15 dates, pitted
1/2 cup almond butter
1 Tablespoon cinnamon
3/4 cup finely chopped pecans
*1/4 teaspoon nutmeg optional*
1. In a food processor, puree the pitted dates, almond butter and cinnamon. (If you like nutmeg, add it here.)
2. Puree the date mixture for about 45 seconds-1 minute, until everything starts to come together.
3. Using the palm of your hands, roll about a tablespoon into 1” balls.
4. Have the pecans chopped and in a small bowl. Roll each ball in the pecans, pressing the pecans around all sides to help them stick.
