Carob or chocolate balls can be made quickly.

In a food processor, grind fine:
1 1/4 cup raw unsoaked walnuts
A dash of Celtic sea salt (most flavorful and nutritious)

Add 10 pitted soft soaked Medjool dates (the sweetener) and grind in food processor until the nut-date mixture sticks together well.

Optional: Add 1/2 teaspoon vanilla, mint or cherry extract and a little water as needed for processing.

Add 1/3 cup carob powder or raw cacao powder and blend in processor until formed.

By hand make balls an inch or so round and chill in the refrigerator.

Optional: mix 1/4 cup chopped dried bing cherries into the mixture by hand before you roll the balls.

Optional: roll in sesame seeds, flax seeds, ground almonds or walnuts, or shredded coconut for decoration and extra flavor.
