Pistachio Brownie Balls

Prep Time10 mins
Course: Dessert, Snack
Cuisine: American
Servings: 25 Servings
Calories: 68kcal


  • cups raw walnuts
  • 1 medium vanilla bean
  • 2/3 cup packed pitted Medjool dates (8-10 large dates)
  • ½ cup packed raisins
  • 2 teaspoons packed finely grated orange zest
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • Finely chopped unsalted pistachios for rolling


  • In a food processor fitted with the steel blade, process the walnuts until finely ground, about 25 seconds.
  • Using a sharp knife, split the vanilla bean in half lengthwise. Use the side of the knife to scrape the seeds out of the pod. Add them to the food processor along with the remaining ingredients. Process until the ingredients are thoroughly incorporated, about 30 seconds. The dough should hold together when pinched between your fingers.
  • Roll the dough into small balls. Roll in the chopped pistachios. Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 1 week (or freeze for up to 1 month).
