Date and almond rolls


I don’t know about you readers but I need my daily fix for dessert after lunch. And yes, it is always after lunch..Considering my big sweet tooth, I can’t afford to have desserts with butter, sugar and all the good stuff in them 😉 So typically my after lunch dessert varies from a piece of dark chocolate, cranberries, raisins, dried apricots etc. Date rolls are also perfect for satisfying these cravings for sweets! They also make a good snack ranging from 50-60 calories a piece and they are so easy to make!

Ingredients :

1 box of Mejdhool dates(3.5 lbs) cut into thin pieces

1.5 cups of almonds

1 and half tablespoon of ghee

1/2 cup grated dried coconut

 

In a thick bottomed wide vessel, add ghee and dates and mash the mixture till the dates breakdown and mix together. After they are mixed well, add the almonds and stir.  Remove from heat and allow to cool, till they can handled.  Shape the mixture into logs. Spread the dried coconut on a plate and roll the logs over the coconut ensuring they are well coated.  Refrigerate for 4-5 hours and then cut into rolls.
