Date Nut Balls (Candy without processed sugar) T&T

Source: Adapted from Dr. Hans Diehl’s CHIP (Coronary Health Improvement Project) – Speaker: Evelyn Cole-Kissinger R.D.

These were served at our CHIP follow-up meeting last evening. They contain no processed sugar, yet are sweet and delicious!

In blender or food processor, chop until they become a coarse meal:

1 cup blanched almonds (i.e., natural almonds with skins removed)
3/4 cup EACH of dried apricots, chopped dates, walnuts

Add and pulse on and off until mixture sticks together:

1/4 cup orange juice

Shape mixture into 1-inch balls. If desired, roll in finely shredded coconut or additional finely chopped nuts. Refrigerate in airtight container until serving.
