Date and Fig Balls
In this Article
These cute looking balls are a powerhouse of energy and nutrients. We have used black dates for making these. Since, this variety of dates is quite sweet, you do not need to add any additional sugar. If you have all the ingredients in place, it will take less than 10 minutes to create these beauties.

- 1 cup black dates, seeds removed and chopped.
- ¼ cup chopped figs
- ¼ cup almonds
- 1 tbsp poppy seeds
- 2 tsp cocoa powder
Churn the almonds in a mixer to a coarse powder. Add it into a bowl.
Churn the figs into chunky bits. Since, black dates are very soft, chopping is enough. Add all these three things in a bowl and mix together.
Grease your hands with ghee and shape small balls of the mixture.
You can leave them as it is or roll a few in poppy seeds or cocoa powder for adding variety. Enjoy!
Tip -You can add any other nuts of choice – walnuts, cashews or pistachios.
