Dates worth remembering

Standard

Doesn’t everyone love a good date? One that’s so good you know you’ll never forget it? One that’s perfectly sweet from start to finish? One that’s pure deliciousness in every bite?

Choco-Almond Date Mini-Balls

Oh wait, you didn’t think I was talking about a romantic date, did you?

In my foodie heart, my only date worth remembering is Medijool. (Okay, that’s not completely true; I’ve had some pretty good romantic dates, but that’s not what we’re talking about today…)

These mini date balls are pure deliciousness… I recently fell in love with Larabars, but I didn’t fall in love with the price tag ($1.79 for a single bar? Yikes!) So, as per usual, I set out to make my own! I based my recipe on this one from Chocolate Covered Katie and made a big batch to enjoy as pre-workout snacks for this week.
