Kid Friendly No Bake Paleo “Donuts”

Anyone who knows me well, knows I have had a great deal of weight loss success by following a paleo diet. So, I am always looking for simple whole food snacks and treats that my kids and I can both enjoy. We all love dates and coconut around here and I cannot believe I did not think of this recipe myself!
This No Bake Coconut and Date Balls recipe is by Jennifer Cheung for Kidspot.com.  I call them Paleo “Donuts” and they are YUM! I like to add a little cacao powder to make them more like chocolate Timbits.
Prep Time:
10 minsCook Time:
0 minsIngredients:
3 cups desiccated coconut
2 cups (200g) pitted dates
Method:
Step 1. Place 2 cups of coconut and the dates into a blender or food processor.

Step 2. Process on high speed for 3-4 minutes, pausing to scrape down sides as needed.

Step 3. Remove from processor and roll teaspoon-sized balls. Roll in remaining 1 cup of coconut.

Step 4. Pack in portions for snacks, to put in lunch boxes and keep on hand to satisfy a sweet tooth in a healthy way.

The date do have a high sugar content so don’t eat too many!
