I love making treats with dates, so wanted to try this recipe. As is often the case with me, I substituted some ingredients to use what was already in my kitchen: pecans and almonds instead of macadamia nuts, and olive oil instead of sunflower oil. I also didn’t have white chocolate, so didn’t add the delicious-looking drizzle this time, but doubled the amount of cocoa powder to add a little more chocolate taste.  And mine were shaped more like balls than cookies.  Either way, yummy, without too much guilt!

Don’t you just love when you give something really healthy to your children. Makes up for all the naughty snacks and foods they some how seem to get their hands on!

With this recipe both parent and child will be soooo happy! I can guarantee this, as this is how I felt yesterday when I made these no bake cookies!

Mine have already disappeared from the fridge mysteriously!! So another batch is about to be made, especially as I promised to take some over to Angie’s Fiesta Friday Party!
