Walnut and date protein balls

I like to keep healthy snack options around so I don't binge on something unhealthy. My go to snack is a few mixed nuts. My little one has started liking them too now. She is not a fan of walnuts but I want her to eat those too since they are a good source of omega 3. So I made these walnut and date balls today and she absolutely loved them and kept asking for more! These are quite filling so you won't end up overeating anyway but if you do, they are healthy and nutritious too. These are also refined sugar-free! I have added a little bit of date syrup to make it easy to blend and shape the balls but you could just use 3/4 cup dates instead and add a tsp of coconut oil if it isn't coming together.


Ingredients

1 cup walnuts
1/2 cup cashews
1 tbsp Chia seeds
1/2 cup pitted dates
1 tbsp 100% date syrup 
2 tsp raw cocoa powder

Method

Add the walnuts, cashews, chia seeds, cocoa powder, dates and the date syrup to a food processor and blend until combined. Shape into balls and chill. You can also make them into bars - pat the mixture flat onto a baking tray, cool and cut into bars or bite size pieces.
