Prep Time: 15 minutes plus 30 minutes to chill
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes plus 30 minutes to chill
Servings: 8 to 10
- 1/2 cup whole hazelnuts, toasted
- 10 whole Medjool dates, pitted and roughly chopped
- 1/4 cup dried blueberries
- 2/3 cup almond butter or sunflower butter
- 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa, sifted
- 2 tablespoons water or unfiltered apple juice
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
Here's how to make it:
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spread the hazelnuts on a small rimmed baking sheet. Bake until lightly toasted, about 10 minutes, stirring once. Cool nuts and rub off skins in between the palms of your hand. Reserve 20 hazelnuts. Pulse remaining hazelnuts in a food processor until finely chopped. Transfer to a small bowl.
- In a food processor, pulse dates and dried blueberries until it's like a paste. Add almond butter, cocoa, water, vanilla and salt. Process until well combined. Turn mixture out into a bowl and divide into 20 equal portions.
- Roll each portion around one whole toasted nut to form a ball. Roll each ball in the chopped hazelnuts to coat. Chill until firm, about 30 minutes.
