Raw Pecan Pie Balls

IMG_5679.jpg

I am preparing for a raw challenge. My plan is to for 21 days but not sure I will last that long! I’ll write about my raw adventure soon. But in the meantime, I have already put away half of these little pecan pie balls – they are so good – for snacks! They are really the perfect combination of nutty and sweet, chewy and crunchy. The perfectly perfect healthy snack!

Makes about 20 balls

1 cup pecans
1 cup Medjool dates, about 12
1/4 teaspoon ground vanilla

Place all ingredients into the processor and process until crumbly. Stop the processor and test to see if the mixture holds together. If not, pulse a few times. But be careful and don’t go too far or you will have pecan butter!

Use a tablespoon ice cream scooper and scoop out the mixture and press it against the side of the processor bowl to make sure it is packed in. Roll it into a ball and set on a plate. Place in the refrigerator to chill.

Store in a container in the refrigerator or freezer and eat at will!
