Rise Up Date Nut Truffles

At our Relaxation Retreats the healthy snacks are a big hit. Here’s the much requested recipe for Rise Up Date Nut Truffles. As treats go these are decadent but healthy with no added sugar or preservatives. Enjoy!

 
2 cups pecans (or your favorite nuts)
2 cups pitted deglet noor dates (or medjool dates)
1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon salt
 
In a food processor, process nuts until they are broken up.
Add dates, coconut, vanilla and salt and process until crumbly but not completely pulverized.
Roll into balls and place on baking sheet. Put baking sheet in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
Enjoy a healthy treat!
