  • 1 1/2 cups unsalted peanuts
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 16 ounces dates, pitted
  • 1-2 tbsp water, if needed


  • Place dates in a bowl and fill with warm water. Let them soak for about 10 minutes. Strain.
  • Place peanuts and salt in a large food processor and process until they resemble very fine crumbs.
  • Add the dates and pulse until a "dough" forms. This may take awhile and you may have to scrape down the sides a time or two. If the mixture seems dry, add additional water, 1 tablespoon at a time.
  • Form into balls of your preferred size. I usually get about 20-24 balls.
  • Store in the refrigerator in an airtight container.
