Diet restrictions during the holidays? No problem! This recipe is both vegan-friendly and gluten-free! These cookie balls are raw, so no baking is required.
1 ¼ cup pitted dates, packed
¼ cup almond meal
¼ cup buckwheat groats
¾ cup gluten-free rolled oats
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon ginger
½ teaspoon nutmeg
¼ teaspoon vanilla
¼ teaspoon cloves
Optional: 1 tablespoon coconut sugar
Blend all ingredients, except for dates, in a high-speed blender or food processor until you get a fine consistency like flour. Add in half of the dates and process until well combined, then add the remaining dates until you have a uniform dough. Scoop dough out about 1 tablespoon in size, roll into balls or flatten with a rolling pin and use a cookie cutter to make desired shapes. Roll balls into coconut sugar or sprinkle on top of cookies.
Before the ball drops in Times Square, enjoy the festivities with your partner creating a sumptuous meal and raising a toast with a champagne cocktail. Join Josh Galliano for a hands-on class creating a grapefruit and coppa salad with shaved fennel, shrimp risotto with roasted butternut squash, five-spice pan-roasted duck with purée of cauliflower and Asian pear relish, plus sweet Italian budino with doughnut ice cream for dessert.View More »
