Course: Snack
Cuisine: Worldwide
Servings: 16 Balls


  • 75g/ 1/2 cup Blanched almonds (or 50:50 almonds & cashew nuts)
  • 125g/ 2/3 cup Pitted dates
  • 50g / 1/2 cup Dried cherries
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 2 tbsp Rolled Oats
  • 2 tsp Poppy seeds
  • 3 tbsp Almond butter
  • 1 pinch Salt
  • 1/2 tsp lemon jiuce


  • Put the nuts into a food processor and process until chopped medium - not too finely though
  • Add the remaining ingredients and continue to process until a sticky dough is formed - you may need to scrape down the sides of the food processor a couple of times
  • Divide the mixture into 16 equal portions weighing approximately 20g each 
  • Firmly squeeze each portion into a rough ball then roll each ball between the palms of your hands to achieve a smoother finish - you may need to wash your hands several times during rolling if they get too sticky
  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week
