These were a hit at my latest Go Venture meeting. (Go Venture is a business course for new businesses).
Pecan-Raisin Balls
2 cups pecan halves
1/4 cup rolled oats or millet flour
10 large pitted dates or 8 pitted prunes
2 tbsp tahini or macadamia nut butter
1 tbsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup raisins
Finely grind pecans and oats (or millet flour) in a food processor. Place in a mixing bowl and set aside. Put dates, tahini, cinnamon, and vanilla into the processor and blend into a paste. Stir paste into pecan-oat mixture and blend well. Add raisins and blend well. Roll into 1″ balls. Refridgerate and enjoy.
