Guilt free sweet?  Yes please!

During my fertility journey I tried just about anything to help my chances of having a child. One of them was changing my diet. Don’t get me wrong, I was always on the healthier side but I did have my guilty food pleasures. When I went on the elimination diet I no longer could have many things I had taken for granted before. One of those were anything sugar and dairy. This is when I started researching and experimenting alot with my own cooking at home as well as alternatives to when I wanted something sweet.

Meet date bars/balls! This was among the favorites that I have discovered in my food journey. No added sugar (sweetened by dates) and it’s packed with good things for you. Guilt-free!

I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. I know T is a big fan of them as well!

Mix all the ingredients together in a food processor or powerful blender – I use a vitamix.

Pack them in a pan to make bars or roll them into balls if you prefer them in ball form!
