Ingredients

Instructions

  • Place cherries in a bowl with warm water and let soak for 15 minutes.
  • Drain and place cherries along with dates into the bowl of a food processor fit with a steel blade. Process until the fruit is starting to come together, about 30 seconds.
  • Add cashews and process again until cashews are broken apart and evenly distributed throughout the mixture, another 30 seconds or so.
  • With the processor going, add cashew butter. Continue to process until the mixture starts to come together to form a dough. Add in maple syrup if desired.
  • Pulse in quinoa flakes (or oats) until dough holds its shape when pressed between your fingers.
  • Taking 2 tablespoons of dough at a time, roll it into a ball between your hands. If using, roll in coconut and set on a plate. Repeat until all balls are formed.
  • Chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes before serving. Keep refrigerated in a sealed container for up to 5 days.
