  1. Remove the pits from dates and soak them in hot water for several minutes. When the dates are softened, drain them and place in food processor. Save the water.
  2. Add the other ingredients to a food processor and process until mixture begins to thicken and stick together.
  3. Check texture by pinching a bit between your fingers. It should be sticky and able to keep its shape. If the mixture is too dry, add 1 Tablespoon more water in which you have soaked the dates.
  4. With the teaspoon scoop the mixture and roll into small balls. Roll individual balls in crushed goji berries or ground almonds to coat.

Recipe Notes

Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator until serving. Keep the energy balls frozen up to 3 months in the freezer. As a measure, I used US cup (240ml).
