Delicious Four Ingredient Date Balls!

Delicious Date Balls with Four Ingredients. Sweet, Crunchy and Yummy!

I have been finding myself eating a handful of pecans and banana chips and a large date or two as an afternoon or evening snack lately, so that got me thinking about making this combination into a date ball. It’s a simple three ingredient snack that is healthy and delicious with a delightful combination of sweet and crunchy, just how I like it. I love the sugariness of the dates with their deep brown sugar like flavor, and the crunch of the pecans with their sweet buttery taste, and the unsweetened banana chips are perfect for crushing and rolling the date balls in for a subtle, crunchy coating.

Ingredients:

1 Cup of Pitted Medjool Dates

1 Cup of Pecans

4 Teaspoons of Tahini or Almond Butter

1/3 Cup of Unsweetened Banana Chips

Directions:

Pulse the banana chips in a food processor until they are fine crumbs. remove then and put them in a small bowl and set aside. Pulse the pecans in the food processor until ground. Place the pecans in a medium bowl. Add the dates to the food processor, and process until finely chopped. Add the pecans back to the food processor along with the tahini or almond butter, and pulse until it sticks together and is blended. Roll the date mixture into balls and roll them in the ground banana chips. Serve and store any extras in the refrigerator for a healthy snack!

Makes a dozen or so date balls.

When I am baking and making sweet snacks I like to use natural sweeteners. Here is a handy guide to using them in place of cane sugar.
