No Bake Cookie Balls (Toasted Fig & Hazelnut)

No Bake Cookie Balls (Toasted Fig & Hazelnut) Recipe

By Peanut Palate

🔪Prep Time: 10 mins


⅓ cup toasted, dried figs

⅔ cup toasted hazelnuts skins removed

1 tbsp pure maple syrup

5 large Medjool dates pitted

¼ cup almond flour

¼ tsp vanilla extract

pinch pink salt

2 tbsp toasted, crushed hazelnuts skins removed // these are for rolling the balls in


1To toast the figs and hazelnuts, add them to a steel pan over high heat. Stir them around constantly until they are browned. You can taste the hazelnuts before and after toasting, and you'll notice that the nutty flavor comes out after toasting it. The figs should also start to turn brown and toast.

2Remove from heat. Remove the skins from the hazelnuts by rolling them in a paper towel and removing the skins.

3Blend together these hazelnuts, figs, and all other ingredients except the 2 tbsp hazelnuts for rolling. You can also toast these hazelnuts with the 2/3 cup you will use for blending, but set these aside and crush them with a mortar and pestle to use later.

4When a dough forms in the blender, turn it off and shape it into 10 balls. Roll dough in the crushed hazelnuts that were set aside earlier.
