1) Place pitted dates, cherries, and almonds in a food processor and process for for a couple of minutes until the dough starts to come together. While it's processing, add 1 tablespoon of water. When the dough sticks together, roll into small balls. Makes about 18 1-inch balls.
2) Variation: Add 3 tbsp of natural cocoa powder to the mixture.
I LOVE these with the cocoa. I make a batch and put them in the freezer. I have one as part of my breakfast and can grab one as a snack whenever I need a healthy boost.
