Eat straight away or place in a sealed container and keep in a cool spot for up to a week.
The mixture varies in terms of dryness, depending on how soft the dates are and whether you use peanut butter. You may not need to add any water, but you most likely will. Just add a little at a time and pulse until you have something that holds together, but isn't sticky or wet.If not using peanut butter, you can roll the balls in desiccated coconut for extra pizzaz.Please note: calories and other nutritional information are per serving.
