Hi everybody, Asiyah here!
I’d like to share with you the very first recipe that I created on my own! These Date Balls are so easy to make, delicious, and nutritious. I like to pack them in my school lunch for a healthy treat! They give me lots of energy to get through the rest of my day. They are:
- naturally sweetened with dates and contain no refined sugars
- contain only 5 ingredients
- gluten, dairy, and (optional) nut free
- perfect for Iftars or to bring to a gathering
<– These are a popular date cookie here in Saudi, but they contain almost 3 spoons of sugar per cookie!
They also lack the protein of my Easy Date Balls, and contain white flour, which is stripped of nutrients and then bleached white. Yuck!!
