  • 4 tablespoons golden raisins, divided
  • 6 Medjool dates, pitted
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon coarse kosher salt
  • ¾ cup (84 g) walnuts, toasted
  • ¾ cup (72 g) old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 2 tablespoons golden raisins, coarsely chopped
  1. Add 2 tablespoons golden raisins and the dates to a small bowl and cover with boiling water; soak for 3 minutes and then drain, reserving the liquid.
  2. Transfer the soaked raisins and dates to a food processor along with the vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, and walnuts and pulse a few times until crumbly. Add the oats and puree until it comes together as a sticky ball of dough, adding the reserved liquid from soaking the raisins and dates 1 teaspoon at a time to help the dough come together if needed. Pulse in the remaining 2 tablespoons raisins a couple times to combine.
  3. Use a 1 tablespoon-sized scoop to measure out the dough and roll it into balls.
  4. If desired, immediately roll each ball in toasted chopped nuts, unsweetened shredded coconut, or toasted oats.
  5. Store covered in the fridge for up to 2 weeks. (They will lose their stickiness after being in the fridge.)
