Macadamia Almond Butter Balls


  • 1 cup macadamia nuts
  • 1/2 cup almond butter *
  • 12 Medjool dates pitted
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground vanilla


  1. Drop all ingredients in the processor. Process until everything is ground up and looks crumbly. Check to see that the mixture sticks together. If not, pulse a few more times.
  2. Have a baking sheet ready and be sure it can sit flat in the freezer.
  3. When the mixture is done, use a 1 tablespoon ice cream scooper and scoop out the mixture. Roll into balls and place onto the baking sheet. Continue to do so until there is none left.
  4. Place in the freezer for an hour or until solid. Place into a glass jar or container and store in the refrigerator. Eat as you please. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

* Homemade nut butter is super easy to make and better than any you will find in the store. I like to use my food processor rather than my Vitamix. It takes some time depending on the nuts – almonds take the longest – but it is worth it. If you processor gets too hot, give it a rest and start it up again until you have butter. You don’t need to add any oil.
