Date Pistachio Balls

December 20, 2012, 12:00 am

From stongertogether.coop

2 cups pitted dates
1 cup unsalted pistachio nuts, shelled
3/4 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
2 tablespoons cocoa powder (optional)



  1. In a food processor, finely grind the pistachios. Remove 1/4 cup of the ground pistachios and set aside. Add the pitted dates and 1/2 cup shredded coconut to the food processor and blend well until the mixture sticks together. Using clean hands, form the mixture into 1-inch balls, roll them in the remaining coconut or pistachios and set on a plate or platter.
  2. To make chocolate date balls, remove half of the blended date/coconut mixture from the food processor, then add 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder to the remainder and process until well blended. Roll in additional cocoa powder to resemble chocolate truffles.
