The 12 balls of Christmas: Pecan Pie Bites

Add text



For the eighth balls of Christmas I’d like to offer you….pecan pie bites! These decadent beauties are made of two simple ingredients – pecans and dates!  Don’t let that fool you, in ball form these two ingredients are like a party in your mouth!  I chose to toast the pecans because I’m obsessed with how delicious it makes them!  Although toasting is optional in the recipe, I highly recommend it.




1 cup medjool dates

1 cup toasted pecans

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 tsp vanilla


1. Toast pecans by placing them on a baking sheet and bake in a preheat oven to 350F for about 5-7 minutes.  Watch carefully because they burn very quickly!  They should smell very aromatic and turn darker in colour.

2. Blend pecans until fine in food processor.  Remove pits from dates and add along with the remaining ingredients.  Process until well combined!

Makes about 12-14 inch sized balls!
