Makes 6-8 medium sized treats
8 medjool dates
3 heaping Tbsp. raw almond butter (I used maple almond butter)
1/4 cup walnuts
1/4 cup dried apple rings
4-5 cubes of frozen banana
A pinch of pink Himalayan salt
sliced almonds for garnish
Place all the ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend till a nice gooey mass forms. Depending on the machine you use, you might need to scrape the sides a few times and continue blending until you achieve your desired consistency.
Bananas, dates and almond butter are very wet and creamy ingredients, so this mass will come out wet. Here is where sliced almonds come into play! Once you make your balls, simply roll them out in sliced almonds, and your dessert won’t stick to your fingers anymore. They add a nice crunch as well.
Pop in the freezer for a few minutes to create texture. Serve as a dessert, as breakfast with a smoothie or a fruit plate, or pack them with you as a perfect snack on the go!
