Remove dates from water and remove the pits.  I rip them apart a bit and put them into the mini food processor.  I also add some of the soaking water to help chop them.

Sometimes I add more of the soaking water, depending on how much dry mixture I add.  I don’t really measure any of this, so sometimes I need more water.

Mix the dry mixture back in with the chopped dates and pulse the food processor a few times.  Then I roll small sections of the mixture in my hands to create a ball shape.  Stick them in the fridge and enjoy!

I like to have one or two after lunch/dinner or before a workout!
