Coconut & Walnut Rolled Dates

by Kristina Blasen (2011)

Amazing, heavenly and wonderful. An all natural candy bar replacement. I got the Earthgrown Organics variety pack with unsweetened coconut rolled dates, almond rolled dates and walnut rolled dates to try it out. Ouch, the pack I got had a pound of fruit and was $6.99, there were probably 12 bars in there to start. (Ha, ha! I don’t know for sure because I ate some of them!)

I found these in the produce section at the local grocery store. Earthgrown Organics is a local company headquartered here in Minnesota too.

Walnut Date Rolls

Walnut Date Rolls

These date rolls have 110 calories each, so you get two for the caloric price of a candy bar, but trust me, these taste WAY better and they actually have some nutrition in them.

Dates have protein, fiber, ash, calcium, phosphorus, iron, potassium, vitamin A, and niacin – and a chemical-laden chocolate bar has what??

Dates are kind of neat actually, instant energy from all that natural fruit sugar, but the fiber made me feel full even though it was a tiny amount of food and the energy boost lasted all afternoon. No 4:30 p.m. nap, at least only one for baby and not for me too!
