Chocolate Date Balls - YUM!

I LOVE finding yummy recipes that have no sugar in them! This one is no exception. Even though I try to steer clear of refined sugar I have such a sweet tooth sometimes I just need something to satisfy my craving!

These were gone the day I made them. My husband loved them. My daughter loved them. And two days later I made another batch, which was no big deal since they only take 5 MINUTES to make!!!

Check out this simple recipe for Chocolate Date Balls:

1 cup pitted dates
1/4 cup walnuts (I took out the walnuts since my daughter is allergic)
1/4 cup rolled oats, not instant
1/4 cup cocoa or Carob powder

Place all ingredients in a food processor and blend until thoroughly combined. The mixture should look like a lumpy paste (I had to add a small amount of water). With slightly wet hands, roll paste into walnut-sized balls. Place on wax paper on a tray or plate and freeze until firm. Store in baggies in refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. ( or for 2 days until they are inhaled!)

Happy eating!!
