3-Ingredient Snack Balls

Makes 12

Hands-on time: 20 minutes

Hands-off time: 40 minutes


10 dates, pitted

2 cups Kellogg's Fruit Mix Granola

Pinch of salt (optional)

½ cup desiccated coconut

Serving suggestion:

Mint tea


1. Cover the dates with boiling water and set aside to soak for 10 minutes.

2. Strain the dates and add them to a food processor together with the Kellogg's Granola Fruit Mix and salt, if using. Blend until fine, thickened and sticky.*Chef’s Tip: if the mixture is too dry, add a splash of water to achieve stickiness.

3. Spoon the blended mixture into a mixing bowl, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 10 minutes.

4. Spoon a tablespoonful of the date mixture and, using your hands, roll the mixture into a ball. Roll in the coconut, pressing it lightly so that the coconut adheres. Shake off the excess coconut. Repeat with the rest of the date mixture. *Chef’s Tip: These date balls can last for up to 10 days when stored in an airtight container between layers of baking paper.

5. Serve the date balls with mint tea and ENJOY!
