When I first made these date balls, I thought they were a healthy substitute for old fashioned date balls. But these yummy snacks doesn’t need to stand aside for any cookie – they are a delicious sweet treat any time of the day. These date balls are quite filling and would make for a perfect lunch box treat or a breakfast on the go.
