I just made these this morning and let me tell you, it took an act of God to keep me from eating all of it right then and there.
I think I got this from Tanya Z.'s website ( I don't know her last name), I am not sure though.
They are so good.
2 c. walnuts
1 c. dates
1 c. frozen blueberries
1/4 c. carob powder
Blend walnuts, dates, berries and carob in food processor until smooth. Shape into small balls and roll in crushed walnut.

That would be Tanya Zavasta.
I was just watching a PBS thing on Dr. Nicholas Pericone's way of eating..and he said blueberries were one of the most powerful brain foods - which in turn makes your skin glow.
We could call them Blue Glow Balls. :)
question, Do you thaw the blueberries first ?
Thanks, they sound great !
I'm going to try this recipe today !! I just bought a few packages of organic blueberries and am looking for some new recipe ideas. ;)

Thanks for the recipie. I am always on the look out for great recipies!
How do you measure the dates? Pit them and pack them into a cup measure or pit them and just gently fit as many as you can into the cup or dice them and then spoon the pieces into the measuring cup?
Also, do you thaw the blueberries first and then refridgerate them when finished or freeze them?
Sorry about all these questions.Thanks for answering.

Here's what I did:
I didn't defrost the berries. I put them in frozen.
I pitted the dates and then packed them in a measuring cup.
After I rolled them in crushed walnuts, (Actually I rolled most of mine in carob powder because I knew my children would like them better) I put them in the freezer and have eaten them out of there.
Mine were kind of chunky. I don't think the dates ever got completely smooth. Probably because they weren't soaked, but the recipe didn't say to soak them.
Also, the mixture is kind of wet and gloppy. So I took a spoonful and then rolled it kind of in the carob powder. They didn't come out perfectly round because I didn't put that much effort into it. I didn't care, they were so good. They really reminded me of chocolate truffles.

How many did the recipe make out of interest roughly?

I made a batch of these... and wow they are sure good!
Now I did soak the dates and would not do that the next time, way too much moisture. The only reason I did soak them is that this last container of dates I got are oh so dry and I didn't want to throw them out so they will all have to be soaked before I can use them in anything!
So since the mixture was so liquid, I added some raisins to the food processor and gave it another whirl and them put the mix into a small oblong glass dish and put it in the freezer. I can cut small squares and the consistency is fine.
Thanks for posting this recipe!
