INSTRUCTIONS:

  • Add the almonds and cashews to the bowl of a food processor. Pulse until nuts are finely chopped (but do not pulse too long, you do not want the nuts to turn into a paste).
  • Add the dates, lime juice and zest. Pulse until the dates are finely chopped and the mixture starts to clump.
  • Shape the mixture into 4cm balls and roll in coconut to coat the outside.
  • Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 10 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
