Heat 2 cups of water until boiling. Add dates, remove from heat. Soak for 15 minutes.

While dates are soaking, combine all dry ingredients in the food processor (oatmeal, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, salt and walnuts).

Pulse until the mixture resembles a powder. Remove from food processor and set aside.

Once dates are finished soaking, drain excess water. Add dates and syrup to food processor.

Puree until blended evenly, scraping down sides of bowl as needed.

Scoop onto tray using a cooking scoop or tablespoon. Roll into balls, refrigerate 1 hour before serving. Enjoy!
