Fig And Hazelnut Balls Recipe


  • 8 oz pitted dates
  • 8 figs chopped
  • 3/4 cup toasted hazelnuts
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg


  • In a food processor, blend the dates until they form a sticky dough ball. If after a few minutes your dates haven’t come together, they might have been too dry to begin. Simply add a tablespoon of water and continue blending until they do come together.
  • Move the date dough to a separate bowl. Chop the hazelnuts and figs in the food processor until they’re broken into small pieces.
  • Dump the fig and hazelnut bits into the bowl with the date dough, adding in the cinnamon and nutmeg. Knead the two together. Break off pieces to roll into a ball or into a bar.
  • Store in an air-tight container at room temperature for up to a week.
