This middle-eastern inspired treat is gluten-free, paleo and vegan and is the perfect way to satisfy a sweet tooth.
You will need:
12-15 pitted dates, halved
One package of unsweetened shredded coconut
Splash of rose water
Pinch of nutmeg and/or clove
Start out by boiling your dates in about 1/2 cup of water just until soft. Drain the water and then either pulse in a food processor or mash by hand (like I did with a potato masher). If using spices or rose water, add them to the mashed dates.
Scoop dates by tablespoon onto a surface covered in shredded coconut. Work the coconut flakes into the mashed dates and then roll into a ball shape and you’re done!
Sprinkle the finished product with some extra coconut. Makes 12-15 treats.
