These make a really sweet all natural treat that almost all can
enjoy... excepting those with nut allergies... but you can always
skip the nut adding... though they are better with the nuts...
- Huge amount of pitted fresh dates
- Huge amount of roasted/non-salted mixed soft nuts
- Huge amount of shredded coconut
at most health food stores, you can buy all these ingredients in
bulk, which I do... better for the environment...
Tools needed: - Huge bowl - Potato masher
To make them:
1 - In large bowl mash dates with potato masher (make sure to check
each date to make sure even the pitted ones are without pit)
If they seem too dry add just enough hot water to moisten them
2 - Crush mixed soft nuts and mix into the mashed dates
3 - Roll the date/nut mix into balls
4 - Fun part - spread out shredded coconut on table and roll the
date/nut balls around until sufficiently covered with coconut
hence the name Yummy Coconut/Nut/Date Rolls...
5 - The best part - sharing them and eating them...
Closing comments: enjoy one and all... for Mother Nature's bounty
is always full of good stuff...
