A pinch of black pepper (optional, enhances turmeric absorption)
Shredded coconut or additional ground turmeric for coating (optional)
Prepare Dates and Nuts:
If the dates are not soft, soak them in warm water for 10-15 minutes, then drain.
In a food processor, combine the dates and almonds. Pulse until the mixture is finely chopped and starts to come together.
Add the ground turmeric, ground cinnamon, vanilla extract, and black pepper (if using) to the food processor.
Process the mixture until it forms a sticky, uniform dough. If it’s too dry, you can add a teaspoon of water and blend again.
Scoop out small portions of the mixture and roll them into bite-sized balls using your hands. If the mixture is sticky, you can wet your hands slightly to make it easier to handle.
If you like, roll the bites in shredded coconut or additional ground turmeric for an extra layer of flavor and texture.
