Instructions

  1. First, remove the pits from the dates. Slicing a date in half lengthwise makes it easy to pop the pit right out.
  2. Next, chop the apple into 1-inch squares, leaving the skin on.
  3. Add all ingredients into your food processor and blend the ingredients.
  4. (You want a course texture to roll the mixture into ball-shaped bites. If your food processor has a hard time blending, add a bit of applesauce to help soften the mixture).
  5. Roll the mixture into 12 equal size bites.
  6. Place each bite on parchment paper and then place in refrigerator or freezer to harden.
  7. Enjoy anytime!
