  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract

  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • Coatings:

  • Unsweetened cocoa powder

  • Finely chopped Blue Diamond Honey Roasted Almonds

  • *Any variety of dates will work, but Medjool dates have the softest texture

  • and caramel like flavor. They require a bit less liquid to soften than other

  • dates.

  2. 2

    Add almond flour, cocoa powder and extracts and process until fairly smooth, stirring as needed. (If mixture is too thick, transfer to a bowl and continue to mix with your hands.)

  3. 3

    Remove to a medium bowl and cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

  4. 4

    Roll into 3/4-inch balls and roll or dip in desired coating. Store tightly covered in the refrigerator.
