  1. Hello Melissa I will try these tomorrow - they look really yummy and I love molasses. Do you have any other ideas for molasses apart from the overnight oats with molasses? Thanks
    1. I do have this recipe that calls for molasses as well.
  2. YUM! I added a little extra molasses and used ground cloves instead of nutmeg. Even my friend who made fun of me for eating "smashed dates for dessert" thought they were good.
  3. Melissa, I love your blog and all the yummy recipes, thanks so much! I have a question for you, though - what kind of food processor do you use? I have tried using my mini-Cuisinart as well as my Blendtec blender to make recipes like this that include nuts and dates, but it always take a LOT of time and effort to get everything blended together. I've tried grinding the nuts and dates separately and then combining, but it doesn't seem to help. I've also tried making coconut manna out of shredded coconut, but gave up after about 45 min. of trying! Any words of advice? Thanks!
  4. These sound amazing! Pinned already but I had to tell you that I can't wait to make them. I hope they don't do a number on my mini food processor, but you know, trying these cookies, it might just be worth it.
    1. Thank you! If you are using a smaller processor, you can break it up into 2 batches. Also, soaking the dates in water for about 10 minutes prior to using them will soften them and hopefully make them easier on your food processor. :)
  5. Seriously delicious!! I didn't have pecans so used almonds instead and they taste so yummy...I hope there's some left when hubby gets home.
    1. Some people claim to, but the mix can be tough to get out of the vitamix. If you try, soak the dates for 10 minutes in water to soften them.
  6. These look wonderful! I'm hoping to make them for my father as a healthier alternative. How should I store these? Do they need to stay in the fridge?
