- 1 1/2 Cup Pitted Dates

- 1/2 Cup Walnuts

Soak the dates in a bowl of warm water for 5 minutes to soften. Drain, reserve the water, and transfer the dates to a food processor and pulse until a thick paste forms. If the mixture is dry, add a tablespoon of reserved water at a time and continue to pulse the mixture.
Add the remaining ingredients to the food processor and pulse until the mixture resembles a dough-like consistency.
Form the mixture into balls and roll in extra shredded coconut if desired. Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and freeze for at least 1 hour.
