For the 11th ball of Christmas I’d like to offer you….festive cranberry chocolate chip balls! When I was brainstorming different recipe ideas I came up with some flavours that were particularly festive. One of the tops flavours I picked were chocolate (goes without saying) and cranberries! Put them together and what do you get? Delicious granola-like balls that have a tart and sweet hit! Feel free to substitute with dried cherries or raisins if you wish!
1 cup nuts, oats or a combination of both
3/4 cup medjool dates, pitted
1/4 cup dried cranberries
2-4 tbsp mini chocolate chips
1. Add nuts and/or oats into the food processor. Blend until a fine powder or as chunky as you like.
2. Add the dates and blend until a “dough” consistency. Add water (1 tbsp at a time) if you need to make it more wet.
3. Scrape into a bowl, mix in the chocolate chips and dried cranberries. Roll between your hands (wet your hands if they stick) to make about 12 1-inch balls.
Enjoy! Store in the fridge for about a week or in the freezer!
