- 4 ounces or 1 cup of raw walnut halves
- 1 cup of Medjool dates
- 3 tablespoons Skinny Bunny AM Chocolate tea
- 1/4 teaspoon mint extract
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- A little salt (optional)
Put dates and walnuts into a blender. Blend these for at least 1 minute or until walnut and dates blend well together.
Now add the remaining ingredients: Skinny Bunny AM chocolate tea, mint and vanilla extract, and salt. Blend them together until it comes in the shape of the dough. The texture of the dough should be clumpy and thick. You can check it by taking some quantity and making a ball from it. If it does not make a ball, you can add 1 or 2 tablespoons of warm water.
Take a cookie dough scoop if you have and grab 1 tablespoon of mixture. Then roll the dough to make a ball. Place the ball onto the baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Make the balls from the mixture and put them onto the baking sheet. Place it in the fridge for 30 minutes to make them chill and a little bit hard.
After chilling, transfer these balls into an airtight container or bag. You can store these balls for one week in the fridge and for 3 months in the freezer.
