Well, week one is almost under our belt as we are going all whole foods! It started out rough, the kids were really wanting toast, pancakes, muffins, corn chips with salsa and guacamole. But, as the week went on they began to make salads and eat fruits instead of complain! The more we stand tough the quicker they accept the change, at least at our house!
1/2 c. medjool dates(pitted)
1/4 c. shredded coconut
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/4 c. dark chocolate(melted)optional
In a food processor add almonds and blend until chopped finely, not butter. Then add the dates, coconut and vanilla. Take out and roll into balls.
If you dip in melted chocolate put on wax paper and stick in refrigerator until hardened. Pack in airtight container.
Enjoy and let me know what you think. My craving for sweet and crunchy are now satisfied! I told my kids they are candy bars and they are so excited to have candy bar to eat when ever they want!!!! I did a mix of with and without chocolate, and they enjoyed them both (I used a 90% cocoa with only 3 gr. sugar).
