With only six simple ingredients, this holiday treat is a delicious, quick, and easy-to-make snack or dessert.


’Tis the seasoning
For even more festive flavor, try adding in ground nutmeg, allspice, and cloves.

Go nuts
Easily substitute walnuts for cashews or hazelnuts, or use sunflower seeds to make these bites nut free.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup (250 mL) walnuts
  • 1 cup (250 mL) rolled oats
  • 1 cup (250 mL) whole soft dates, about 10-12
  • 1 Tbsp (15 mL) blackstrap molasses
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) cinnamon
  • 3/4 tsp (3 mL) ground ginger

Directions

  1. Add all ingredients to food processor and blend until well combined. If mixture sticks to edges, scrape down with rubber spatula between blending.

  3. Store in fridge for up to two weeks.
