1/3 cup loosely packed, pitted and chopped Medjool dates (about 6-7 dates)

2/3 cup packed dried, unsweetened sweet cherries or juice-sweetened tart cherries

2/3 cup raw almonds

1/3 cup pecans

1-2 tbsp. water

Pit and chop the Medjool dates. Combine dates, cherries, almonds, and pecans in a food processor, and process 1-2 minutes, scraping down sides a couple times. Mixture will first come apart, and then break down into finer crumbs, finally holding together in a clump of “dough” that will roll around in processor. If dough doesn't hold together after 1 minute of processing, add water 1 tablespoon at a time until it does. When ingredients are well incorporated, roll dough into quarter-sized balls. May be stored at room temperature or in the refrigerator.
