    Love these! So good. I added organic cacao, flaxseed, blended cashews & coconut and made them into on the go snacks. The kids love them and they’re delicious!

    Deliscious! So easy to make. Quite sticky. The dedicated coconut helps to roll them into the balls (coat the balls with it) then roll them

    overall a good basis for a recipe. i think depending on climate of where you live, you may have to improvise a bit. it is currently 0degrees here so i needed a bit more coconut oil and then I also added more dates than what was called for. i rolled half in coconut for extra flair. i think no matter what these will taste great, its just the consistency which may change with season.

    It was great... was a bit too mushy for my liking because i skipped the coconut flakes.

    Fantastic!! Great for energy while hiking, biking, kayaking, etc! I made it exactly how the recipe stated and rolled them in coconut flakes before chilling. My husband works manual labor and loves these as a filling snack because they give him energy.

    I had no idea what this was going to taste like. I am so blown away right now! LOVE! I didn’t have unsweetened coconut so I used the sweetened coconut flakes I had in my pantry. I will definitely be making this again and will be recommending to everyone. It tastes like Mexican wedding cookies!
    Amazing!! So delicious and full of flavour, I used macadamia nuts and flax seeds instead of wall nuts. Naturally sweet and so tasty! My new date ball recipe😌🙌

    So easy and yummly! ;) Great snack and sweet fix. I added a 1/2 cup Cacao nibs to bump up flavor. Going to make these again and again!

    Super easy. A really tasty treat pre workout or sweet after dinner. The best part? Only natural sugar. Vanilla can be omitted; I've added hemp hearts as well for a bit more protein Recommend soaking the dates for about 10minutes in water before processing them to make them softer
