My Very Own Walnut, Date, and Orange Zest Balls

Raw and vegan power balls - a tasty and healthy treat.

  • About 200 grams of unsalted walnuts
  • About 200 grams of dates (deseeded)
  • Zest of an orange -- about a fist full - The imported big oranges work better than the local ones.

To make:
  • Grind the walnuts to a granular powder in a blender - I prefer a bit of uneven chunkiness. Set aside.
  • Grind the dates or finely chop them up.
  • Grate the zest of an orange.
  • Using these three ingredients, form a dough, mixing all three well together.
  • Form bars or balls in the size you desire.
  • Refrigerate for some time

Serving: Will make about 25 laddoos.

PS: Unlike the last time I made these kinds of balls, I left out honey or water - so that this time the "dough" was really dry. That way I dont have to leave the balls out in the sun to dry out the excess moistness.

Yum!These look very zesty, though i've never tasted this combination of walnuts, dates and zest. Will give it a shot soon and tell you my feedback :)

I love the way these are sounding! Good thing they're healthy because I might end up eating a ton of them :)
