We hear a lot about super food this and that, and it has occurred to me more than once, where does that leave regular food stuffs? I reckon it’s all a bit of marketing hype. Here’s why: all (non processed) foods have their valuable health-promoting qualities. And in ways you wouldn’t imagine!
½ c. loosely packed, pitted Medjool dates (about 6—7 dates, the fresher the better)
½ packed c. dried, unsweetened sweet cherries or juice-sweetened tart cherries
2/3 c. raw almonds
1/3 c. pine nuts
1—2 Tbs. water
- Combine dates, cherries, almonds, and pine nuts in food processor, and process 1—2 minutes, scraping down sides a couple of times until a “dough” is formed. If dough doesn’t hold together after 1 minute processing, add water 1 Tbs. at a time until it does.
- When ingredients are well incorporated, roll into walnut-sized balls.
- It’s optional to then to coat in lightly toasted coconut flakes or chopped nuts (mmmm pistachios)
- Store in refrigerator
