Date Nut Pop'ems
1 cup of ground nuts: cashews, walnuts, sunflower seeds, and almonds (cashew butter can be substituted for the ground cashews)
2 date coconut rolls or 3 soft medjool dates
Grind the nuts and seeds in a high-powered blender of coffee grinder to make a fine nut flour.
I often use the back of a wooden spoon to crush the walnuts into a paste.
Knead the date roll or mashed medjool dates into the powdered/crushed nuts.
Add the cashew butter if desired and continue to knead until an even consistency.
Mold into bite-size balls that toddlers can use as finger food.
You can grind a large amount of the nuts at one time and store in the freezer for later use.
