You MUST try these super delicious treats.  I created these this week while experimenting in the kitchen with my sister and they were a HUGE hit.  They are so easy to make and the recipe contains only 2 ingredients!  It is also a great activity to do with kids of all ages.  They will have a blast mashing the dates and rolling them into balls.  Try them and let me know what you think...


Almond Date Rolls

Yield: Approximately 25



  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. Place 1 cup of the almonds onto a baking sheet and bake for about 10 minutes, or until centre of almond is golden in colour.  Let almonds cool completely, then roughly chop and set aside.
  3. Remove pits from dates then place into medium bowl.  Mash dates well with a fork or with your hands.
  4. Grind remaining 1 cup of almonds in a food processor.  Remove ground almonds and add to bowl of dates and mix well.
  5. Using a teaspoon, take a heaping scoopful of the date/almond mixture and roll in your hands to form a ball.
  6. Roll each ball into the chopped toasted almonds until it is well coated.
  7. Refrigerate until serving and enjoy!
