Sweet and Salty Nutter Balls

Sweet and Salty Nutter Balls
My husband likes Lara Bar’s Uber bars and one day he brought home a box of “Roasted Nut Rolls”. I liked the name so I flipped to the ingredients and decided I wanted to make a simple version at home. These were a huge hit with my gym friends (great for both pre- and post-workout) as well as a sweet treat, snack or quick, grab-and-go breakfast for my family.

    Ingredients
    • 1/2cup roasted peanuts
    • 1/2cup total of mixed raw nuts (like almonds, cashews, and macadamia)
    • 1 1/2cup pitted dates
    • 1/2teaspoon sea salt
    Instructions
    1. Place all the nuts in the bowl of a food processor. Process into a coarse meal. Slowly add dates, until mixed well and slightly sticky. Add in the sea salt and pulse until combined. Remove to a large bowl (when you try to combine some in your hand it should stick together, if not then add more dates until slightly sticky).
    2. Roll mixture into 1” balls. Best stored in the refrigerator.
    Recipe Notes

    This basic recipe is a jumping start to add in some other ingredients that compliment the sweet-salty, such as chocolate chips, pretzels, unsweetened shredded coconut or even citrus zests and extracts.

    This version will have a predominantly peanut butter flavor, but feel free to experiment with the ratio of peanuts to the other nuts.

    If you only have roasted nuts, don’t hesitate to still make these. It’ll probably have a more roasted flavor than if you use raw nuts but that is ok.
