These things are great! The dates add natural sweetener - no sugar added! They come from the Biggest Loser Cookbook and are probably the best recipe in there! Note: These taste great with natural peanut butter, which avoids having sugar added because of the sugar added to regular peanut butter.

I've made these twice now and doubled the recipe both times. I should probably make a triple or quadruple batch next time, given how much my kids love them. I put everything in a food processor and add 2-3 Tbsp. water (when doubling) and some unsweetened coconut. They hold together just fine for me.

If these won't stick together for you, soak the dates in water for a couple of days. They get very soft, and they're easier to mix and shape. I mixed the dates with coconut and Honey Bunches of Oats cereal. They were great!

I wasn't very impressed with these. They were really dry, didn't hold together very easily and the peanut butter overpowered the taste of the dates so they may as well have just been peanut butter and oatmeal balls. I was looking for a more date-y flavour.
