The balls will keep in the fridge for up to 2 weeks and freezer for up to 2 months. They’re fine out of the fridge for a day, probably longer if you can keep them cool! If taking on the road, I’d recommend storing them in the freezer beforehand.
If your almond butter or dates were too dry, the dough may be too crumbly to stick together. Add warm water 1 tsp at a time and blend again until you can press the dough together between your fingers. Using wet hands to roll the balls will also help.
It’s important to use soft, moist dates in this recipe. If your dates are on the dry side, soak them in hot water for 15 minutes then drain before using.
Almond butter can be substituted with peanut butter or cashew butter, or for nut-free, Wowbutter, tahini or sunflower seed butter.
