This special treat is naturally sweet and full of omega-3s. This was adapted from Jennifer White in the program Helping Your Child Eat Well on 3ABN. Enjoy!
- 3⁄4 cup water
- 1⁄2 cup dates
- 1⁄4 cup toasted almond
- 1⁄3 cup raw cashews
- 1⁄4 cup raw walnuts
- 2 teaspoons ground flax seeds
- 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
- 1⁄4 cup finely grated coconut (for rolling Chewies in)
- Place dates in water and bring water to a boil. Cover, remove from heat, and set aside to let dates to soften. If your dates are really soft, you may skip this step.

- With your hands, form a ball using about 2 teaspoons of mixture at a time. Roll each ball in coconut. Serve and enjoy!
These are really really good Sharon. I did omit the cashews and added more almonds. Plus I used ground flax instead of seed. I only got 12 walnut size balls. Made for Veg-n-Swap~
