SERVES: 12-14 balls
DIETARY PREFERENCES: Vegan, Vegetarian, Gluten-free, Dairy-free
10 Medjool dates, pitted
200g raw macadamia nuts
75g 100% natural cashew or almond butter
1 tbsp coconut oil, melted
sea salt, to taste
1-2 tbsp water, if needed
Crushed macadamia nuts, to garnish
Line a baking tray with baking paper.
Place the Medjool dates, macadamia nuts and cashew butter in a food processor and blend until well combined.
Add the coconut oil and sea salt and blend again until a dough begins to form. If the mix looks and feels a bit dry, add a little water. The mix should feel a little sticky.
Using your hands, roll tablespoonfuls of the mixture into snack-sized balls. Place the balls on the prepared tray.
Pour the crushed macadamia nuts onto a plate or flat surface and roll the balls in the nuts to coat. Return them to the prepared tray and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Serve the Salted Caramel & Macadamia Bliss Balls straight from the fridge or store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Enjoy!
