1c pitted dates (medjool are my favorite – sweet and soft)
1c blanched, toasted almonds OR 1c almond meal
1 tbsp honey
1/2 tsp orange blossom water
If using whole almonds with skins – boil for 2-3 minutes, drain and squeeze individually to remove the skins. Toast in a warm oven until browned. Place in a food processor and process until broken down to a flour like mixture.
Place dates (alone) in a food processor and blend until broken apart. Add the almond meal and mix together. It will come out as a crumbly mixture. Turn out into a large bowl. Add in the honey and orange blossom water and mix by hand. Shape into balls about half the size of a golf ball. Roll balls in powdered sugar to coat. Store in an airtight container in the fridge (if they are not all eaten right away!)
