Easy to make, keeps well and taste great! Try these nibbles of energy, Honey Dates and Walnut Bites, perfect anytime you need a little pick-me-up.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups Medjool Dates, pitted and roughly chopped
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon, ground
  • 1 Tbsp Honey
  • 1 tsp Rosewater, optional (can use 1 tsp of water if needed)
  • 1 1/2 cups Walnuts, toasted and roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup Coconut, shredded

Instructions

  1. In a dry skillet, toast the Walnuts until just starting to color, remove from heat to cool. Set aside.
  2. In a shallow bowl, add the Coconut. Set aside.
  3. Add the pitted Dates, Cinnamon, Honey and Rosewater (optional) to a food processor and pulse until you have a nice paste. 
  4. Add in the cooled Walnuts, and pulse a couple of times to incorporate into the Dates mixture. Do not over mix.
  5. Pinch about a cherry size of the mixture and roll into a ball (keep your hands just moist with water to prevent sticking).
  6. Roll each Date Bite into the shredded Coconut, coating evenly. 
  7. Place in an airtight container and keep in the refrigerator or freezer.

Notes

You can replace the Rosewater with Orange Water or simply water if preferred. The Rosewater not only adds a hint of flavor but also gives the mixture just enough moisture so the bites are not crumbly or dry.

Will keep in the refrigerator for 2 - 3 weeks, or in the freezer for up to 3 - 4 months.
