4 Ingredient Vegan Coconut Date Delights
Dates are one of my favorite things to have on hand to use in my recipes as a natural sweetener & the perfect sticky situation to use as a base to mold other ingredients together. Plus they're great to have around to satisfy a sweet tooth.
Yes they're high in calories and sugar, *natural sugar, that is*, but like anything else, consume in moderation & you'll get the benefits and satisfaction from them.
These Coconut Date Delights are one of my favorite sweet treats. They're SO good, healthy, are made from only 4 ingredients, & don't require baking!
...doesn't get much better than that!
Try out the recipe & enjoy as a high-energy #snack, afternoon pick-me-up, or something to satisfy your sweet tooth.

1 cup raw, whole almonds
1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
