A Recipe For You

In my attempt to make something kind of like the Lara Bar peanut butter cookie bars, but with a less "datey" taste I came up with these peanut butter balls. They take only 10 minutes to make from start to finish and that's WITH little helping hands.

Peanut Ball Cookies
3 cups unsweetened dates
1 cup unsalted peanuts
1/2 c. unsweetened coconut
2 Tbsp ground flax seed
1/2 tsp vanilla
A dash of salt
Combine all ingredients into food processor and turn on for a couple minutes until mixture resembles the picture below. Have you and your helper roll into little balls (remembering that little hands need to use smaller amounts of dough). Makes about 18 cookies, refrigerate to keep dates fresh. Enjoy!
