Maple Pecan Pie Balls
More delicious than the classic Southern Pie, in almost completely raw, whole-foods form! These are a perfect dessert or portable snack that will satisfy a sweet tooth.
- 1 1/4 cups raw pecans
- 1 1/2 cups medjool dates, pitted
- 1/4 cup rolled oats
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon maple extract
- Place all ingredients in a food processor and blend until ingredients are the texture of sand and you can pinch a small amount together and it will stick. Empty your dough into a bowl.
- Fill a bowl with lukewarm water. Dip your fingers in the water and scoop out 2 roughly packed tablespoons of mixture. Roll dough into 1 ½ inch balls. Place on a plate or in a Tupperware container, cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour before enjoying.
