Paleo Banana Nut Balls

I visited my awesome Uncle Tony last night and he made same delicious Paleo Apple Pie Bars….the recipe can be found at: http://paleoonmain.blogspot.com/2011/07/apple-pie-balls.html?m=1

I adapted the recipe to Paleo Banana Bread Balls because I had no unsweetened applesauce on me. I also replaced the figs with dates.

Ingredients:
1 cup pitted dates
1 banana + 1 tablespoon water, mashed with a fork
1/2 tablespoon cinnamon
1/4 cup almond flour
1/2 cup coconut flour
1/2 cup almonds
1 cup walnuts
—————————————-
1/2 cup almonds
1/2 tablespoon cinnamon

Directions:
In a food processor blend dates, banana mixture, and 1/2 tablespoon cinnamon.
Pour the mixture into a large bowl, add coconut and almond flour and mix together.
Now in the food processor blend 1/2 cup almonds and 1 cup walnuts.
Mix the nut mixture into the large bowl as well. (I found it easier to use my hands and mix it all together.)
Finally in the food processor, blend the remaining almonds and cinnamon.
Roll 1 tablespoon of the dough mixture into about 20 balls.
Roll each ball in the almond and cinnamon.
Refrigerate before ready to serve!
