Makes 12 / This raw-food treat combines top anti-inflammatory agents, including tart cherries and omega-3–rich walnuts.
1 cup dried sour cherries
4 Medjool dates
1/3 cup walnut pieces
1 tablespoon fresh orange juice
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3 tablespoons dark chocolate chips
2 tablespoons unsweetened shredded coconut
1. Finely chop dried cherries, dates, and walnuts and combine in a large mixing bowl. Add orange juice, cinnamon, chocolate chips, and coconut. Mix together with hands, working into a sticky mass. Mixture should hold together; if necessary, add another chopped date or a little more juice.
2. With clean, slightly wet hands, roll mixture into walnut-size balls. Gently place into an airtight container and refrigerate. They will become firmer as they cool.
