Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup pistachios hulled
  • 1/2 cup sweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 14 Medjool dates pitted
  • dark chocolate mixed with a touch of coconut oil, for topping
  • cocoa powder for topping
  • shredded coconut for topping

Instructions

  • Soak the dates in warm water for about 10 minutes. Drain.
  • In your food processor, combine pistachios, shredded coconut, cocoa powder, and salt. Pulse until finely ground.
  • Add in vanilla and the softened mejool dates and pulse until a ball forms.
  • Roll into bite sized balls (mine were about 1/2 tablespoons) and dip immediately in to cocoa powder, shredded coconut, or my personal favorite dark chocolate that's been melted with a *hint* of coconut oil.
  • Enjoy immediately! Store the leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge.
  • Take 5 seconds to rate this recipe below. We greatly appreciate it!

Notes

Nutritional information does not include toppings. 
Cocoa powder is extremely bitter, so make sure you like the taste before rolling all of them in cocoa powder. My personal favorites are the shredded coconut or dark chocolate! :)
