    HOORAY for food-processor-ownership! How sweet of Ricki and Lisa. You are back in business, my friend! 🙂

  2. CheezyK

    102 … I think that’s a new record 🙂

    Also, yay for friends who are willing to help you with your foodprocessorlessness, so exciting to be able to whip up things like this again.

    I’m so happy to hear you’ve been hugging L.P.’s f.p. and getting some goodness out of the effort.

    Love you!

    Love this!!! And thankful I don’t have dates or oatmeal (gasp!) right now… because I’d be making them and I don’t think I could stop eating them tonight. Sweet tooth is out of control! Weekend project. 🙂

    Lucky you! My FP is on its dying days. I thought crazy glueing it together would help but I out it down since Christmas. Today, first day out since the glue experiment and I broke it. Gah! It was like 40 years old so I can’t complain too much. It had a good life.

      Put it down since Christmas.. Funny autocorrect

    so glad to hear you are being looked after while far from home – though am sure lisa and ricki make toronto like home! these balls look great – and I quite like the idea of putting rice cakes into them – will be storing that idea away for the future

    Yay for food processors!
    I am on the count down to being Stateside next Saturday, and I have extended my trip to go to a conference in San Diego, very excited!

    Yum yum yum

    How lovely of Lisa and Ricki. I love the sound of these though will have to try the “note” version. Love them balls! (Made the Cherry Coconut Macaroons again last weekend and they’re as good as ever.) xxx

    My sweet tooth has been going out of control lately so this is a perfect recipe 😀

    Ah, delicious balls…. how I have missed your balls, Hannah (snort).

  12. Kath Lockett

    Hannah, I keep reading about ‘Medjool’ dates – how are they different or amazingly special from bog-ordinary ones…?

  13. Louise

    Lucky you Hannah, what lovely friends. I’m seeing a theme here a la special k slice. Buying something moderately healthy, although I’m not sure that caramel flavoured rice cakes count in that category, and then covering them with sugar. Even if it is mainly nature’s caramel. I have a pack of medjool dates in the cupboard, sadly well short of a kilo I should think. I do like your suggestion of popping these in the freezer. So much clever advice.

    Your ball creations are the most inventive and best things you make. What I particularly like about this one is it doesnt have a huge amount of nuts and its not crazy sweet. Two things raw desserts are known for.

  15. leaf (the indolent cook)

    I’m so glad you can have balls again! 😉 Pretty cool recipe, with the use of rice cakes and all!

  16. Alayna @ Thyme Bombe

    Yay! A triumphant return to balls! Never thought I would say that.

    1. Emma

      Hah! Nice one.

  17. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    Hehe your balls are back! OK I just wanted to say that 😛

  18. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    Next time I buy the Australian version of caramel rice cakes, and regret it 2 rice cakes into the packet, I shall know what to do 🙂

  19. Emma

    Look at all these women, so pleased and excited to be able to unleash balls-based comments upon the world once again. You are freeing them Hannah. Freeing them from their socially-imposed chains!

    I probably won’t ever have rice cakes on my shelf, because I find them oh so bland. But if they ever wander their way into my kitchen, I’ll know how to make them disappear right quick.

  20. Lyf

    How do you think corn cakes will taste instead of rice? I want to try it but shudder at the thought of leftover rice cakes that I will buy.

  21. Catherine

    Gorgeous and congrats on the food processor. I keep forgetting to buy nut butter on my trips to town. Must invent!

  22. msihua

    Happy that your universe has righted itself once again 🙂

  23. Theresa

    It only *very recently* occurred to me that I can use our mini chopper to make batches of balls. We’ve been enjoying the cashew-date ball and banana-date ball phenomenon for the past 2 or 3 weeks.

  24. Gabby @ the veggie nook

    Yay for food processors! I went a whole year without one when I was travelling and I don’t know how I did it. So glad you no longer have to 🙂
