Pecan Pie Cookie Dough Balls

By Chocolate-Covered Katie

(raw and gluten-free)
  • 1/2 cup raw pecans (For all substitutions on this recipe, see nutrition link below) (52g)
  • packed 1 cup pitted dates (I use Sunmaid, found in regular grocery stores near the raisins, as they are softer and stickier than the ones found in natural food stores.) (160g)
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • optional: chocolate chips (or mini chips, or a piece of your favorite chocolate bar)
Combine all ingredients in a food processor until it makes a crumbly dough. (You can add the optional chocolate chips either before or after blending.) Pour crumbles into a bag and smush into one big ball. Remove from bag and form little balls. Or you can make bars or cookie-cuttered shapes if you prefer. This can also be made in a Magic Bullet: halve the recipe for best blending in a bullet.
