DIRECTIONS

  • Grind almonds and cinnamon in food processor until finely chopped.
  • Add tahini and continue to pulse.
  • Add dates and chop until all blended in (be careful with pits!).

  • Can be eaten chilled or at room temperature, and they also travel well so they make a good brown-bag dessert.
