No Cook Date Balls!

I have always wanted to dabble with whole foods so when I saw this recipe I knew I had to try it.
It comes out of the soon to be released 

Gooseberry Patch has given me permission to post the recipes that I have tried in my reviewing the book. You will have a chance to win a copy before it ever hits the stands on my main blog. So keep an eye out for that.


NO COOK DATE BALLS!

1 cup dates
1/4 c. plus 1 TBS raisins
1/4 c. walnuts
1/4 c. almonds
1/8 c. cashews
7/8 tsp. cinnamon

Combine all ingredients together in a food processor. Process to desired consistency. If too dry, add a little water, one teaspoon at a time. Roll mixture into one inch balls. Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate until serving time. Makes 1-1 1/2 dozen.

I have to tell you that we ALL loved these.  My 17 year old, my 8 year old and my 5 year old. 
What a great way for them to get some fiber!
ENJOY!
