Date & Coconut Treats

Aloha!

Today I have a quick treat recipe to share. I was inspired to make these after I saw some delicious looking coconut macaroons in the bakery case of a local coffee shop. These are my version of those macaroons.

What You Need:

  • A food chopper or processor
  • 3 Dates with the seed removed
  • 2 Tbsp of unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1 Tsp of sweetened coconut. Alternatively you could add in 1tsp more of unsweetened coconut along with a little sugar or stevia.
  • Spoon

Directions:

  • Add in ingredients 
  • Pulse the food chopper in slow bursts at first to break up the dates and then let it blend until you reach a consistency that looks like this:
  •   Then spoon out a little of the mixture and roll it into a ball or form into a cookie shape, depending on what you prefer. 
  •  Place the finished treats into cupcake liners and enjoy immediately or place in the fridge to enjoy later. 
Here are what my finished treats look like:

These are a great way to satisfy your sweet tooth without overdoing it. They are vegan, gluten-free, and all natural. You can’t get much better than that!

Have a date day…I mean great day! 🙂
