Coconut Date Rolls

Coconut Date Rolls

Coconut Date Rolls | Busy B CooksAfter my lovely girls’ trip to Wilmington, before leaving town I visited the Whole Foods. OMG. That place is amazing, especially when you are on Whole30. I stumbled on these Coconut-date rolls in the bulk foods section – so I picked up four little rolls.When I got home and actually tried one of the rolls, I wished I had bought every single roll they had left. So good, so sweet and delightful. But these little doodles didn’t seem to complicated, so I googled the recipe and BAM! Found them!

So here you go! I made mine into bites, but the original recipe called for two inch “rolls” or “logs” – up to you. This is probably SWYPO in terms of Whole30, but who is keeping track?

Ingredients:

    • 1lb dates, pitted
    • 1 cup slivered almonds (Natural, watch out for roasted almonds)
    • 1 cup shredded coconut

Directions:

In a food processor, put the almonds in first, then put the dates. Process the almonds and dates together, until a ball forms (about 2 minutes). You’ll know when it’s combined because the mixture will make your processor hop around!

Put the shredded coconut in a bowl, set aside.

Turn out the date- almond mixture onto a cutting board, or working surface. Take a small amount, about the size of a baseball and work into a log. Using wet hands, if the mixture is too sticky, roll our the date-almond mixture to your desired thickness.

Cut in bites or “logs” and roll in coconut until coated. Store in an air-tight container for 2 weeks.

Can also be refrigerated and served chilled.

Enjoy!
