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!

  1. Ooh! I like this! No bake items are perfect for summer, and using the food processor makes this so easy. Thanks for sharing! Happy FF and have a wonderful weekend! πŸ˜€

  2. Good heavens, Dimple ! – I can’t begin to think of what my weight would do … It’s simply NOT FAIR: I can’t eat any desserts or biscuits without busting out of my already stretched clothes. [sob !]

  4. How did you know I was thinking about making no-bake cookies? These sound delicious, Dimple, no wonder they disappeared from the fridge, I think the Fiesta Friday crowd will devour these too! Thank you for sharing!!

  5. Oh yum! Dimple these look amazing and healthy too! I’m going to give these a try very soon… such a fast little treat to prepare – though I know that I’ll struggle to wait the 30 minutes before biting into one! Thanks so much for bringing along to FF this week!

  6. Ooh, perfect. I’ve been looking for another good combination for dates–we call this kind of thing “date balls” around our house, and my toddler gets sooo excited every time we make them!

  7. Reblogged this on The Seated Cook and commented:
    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. Yummy!
