Walkers Energy Balls

Method

1
Place dates into a small pot or heat resistant bowl, cover in hot water for five minutes. Drain and dry dates.
2
Place shortbread into food processor, pulse until it forms coarse crumbs.
3
Reserve 1/4 of the crumbs (about an ounce) in a shallow bowl.
4
Add the almond butter and dates to the food processor with the remaining shortbread crumbs and pulse until the mixture incorporates into a firm, smooth dough.
5
Scoop a heaping tablespoon of dough out of the food processor and roll it it between your palms. It should form quickly and easily into a ball.
6
If the mixture is too moist and sticky, return the ball to the food processor and add an additional shortbread. If it is too dry and crumbly, add a tablespoon of almond butter. Pulse the mixture several times and repeat if the problem persists.
7
Once your dough is the proper consistency, use your hands to roll heaping tablespoons into balls.
8
Roll the balls one at a time in the reserved shortbread crumbs to coat them in crunchy cookie bits.
9
Store energy balls in an airtight container for up to one week.
10
Makes approximately 12 energy balls, depending on how ‘heaping’ your tablespoons were.
