A Guide to Feeding our Future

“My oldest daughter loves these (she is 5) because she gets to roll the dates and almonds in coconut and make them all “hairy”!  Adding a bit of dried apple and cinnamon to this recipe makes them extra yummy!”


  • equal parts finely chopped dates and finely chopped almonds
  • shredded coconut
  •  optional:  dried apples (1/4 amount apple to date ratio), and cinnamon (roughly 1 TBSP  per 1 /3 cup of mixture)


  1. Mix both ingredients really well by hand or in a food processor.
  2. Take a teaspoon, and roll it in your hands into a ball.
  3. Place balls on a parchement paper- lined cookie sheet.  If you need to, wet your hands often to prevent the dates from sticking too much to you.
  4. Roll the balls in the shredded coconut, place back on the paper-lined trays.
  5. To store them, place one layer of parchement paper in the cookie container, a layer of the “bombs”, another layer of paper, etc. and store them in the fridge.
