- 2 cups (about 15-16) pitted dates
- 1 cup Vashishti cashews, almonds and walnuts
- 2 tbsp cocoa powder

- 1/4 cup Vashishti A2 cow ghee
- A pinch of sea salt
- Nuts: You'll need 1 cup of Vashishti cashews in total. You can use your preferred nuts.
- Dates: Use your favorite variety of dates. If your dates are hard or dry, soak them in warm water for at least 15-20 minutes, then drain before using.

1. Prepare Dates: If using hard or dry dates, soak them in warm water for 15-20 minutes and drain.
2. Toast the Nuts (Optional): Lightly toast the Vashishti cashews, walnuts, and almonds in a dry pan for extra flavor, or use them raw.

4. Add Vashishti A2 Cow Ghee: Drizzle the Vashishti A2 cow ghee over the mixture in the food processor.
5. Blend: Process the mixture until it forms a sticky and crumbly dough. If the mixture is too dry, you can add a few drops of water to help it come together.
6. Shape into Balls: Take small portions of the mixture and roll it into bite-sized balls. You can adjust the size to your preference.
7. Chill: Place the energy balls on a plate or tray and chill them in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes to set.
