  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Grind dates in a food processor until smooth; add cashews and continue to process until finely ground.
  2. Transfer the cashew mixture to a large bowl. Mix orange zest and cardamom into the cashew mixture. Divide and shape mixture into 1-inch balls.
  3. Spread coconut flakes into the bottom of a shallow dish. Roll balls in coconut to coat.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • You could substitute nutmeg for the cardamom.
  • If flakes have a hard time sticking to the outside of the balls, add coconut to mixture before turning them into balls.
  • Keep refrigerated until ready to serve.
