These are very good! They come together easily and quickly, and they will be gone tomorrow, since we had them for dessert tonight and DH is taking them to work tomorrow! I toasted some coconut, whirled it in the food processor and rolled them in it. I'll make these again. ZWT 7 - Shady Ladies

Delish! Really tasty and so easy to put together. I made a double batch because I knew I was going to love 'em. I used a combination of both almonds and cashews and veganized it by using agave nectar instead of honey. I will make this again for sure. Made for the vegetarian/vegan recipe swap.

I loved these! They remind me of skillet cookies that we used to make for Christmas when I was a kid. I used a puffed seven grain cereal as I could not find puffed wheat anywhere--otherwise followed the recipe to the letter. I wet my hands with water periodically to keep the mixture from sticking as I formed it into balls. I used a heaping teaspoon to form walnut sized balls. The recipe yielded 20 balls. Made and reviewed for ZWT4.

Easy and good! But it's kind of funny that I don't like the first bite because of the sesame seeds, but after the first bite I don't taste sesame seeds anymore and I really like the balls. Weird, huh? I used puffed millet because I had some and cashews. It's all pantry stuff for me which is nice. Reviewed for ZWT4.

Yum. DD1 (5 years old today) and I like these little morsels. I made ours gluten free using a puffed rice cereal which is not wheat. Quinoa & amaranth are not wheat either as mentioned in the ingredients list. I used Iranian Parnoosh dates (pretty soft), whole almonds, sesame seeds I toasted in a dry frying pan, yellow raisins, no honey as it didn't need it. I liked that they weren't too sweet without the honey. Made for FEBRUARY'S SUN and SPICE EVENT (Prime Ingredient Challenge - Dates)

I made these for a snack for lunch tomorrow. The ingredients were things I already had on hand, and they went together easily.
