These sweet, little bites call for just 4 ingredients but totally deliver on pecan pie flavour. Enjoy as a healthier dessert or snack, before workouts or add to your holiday goodie tray!




  1. Place all ingredients in a food processor.
  2. Mix until it forms a thick, sticky dough you can press together between your fingers. If it’s not sticking together (it should if your dates were soft), add 1 tsp warm water and process again. Repeat as needed until the dough is rollable.
  3. Remove and roll into 12 balls.


Dates: It’s impotant to use soft, moist dates in this recipe as they create the “dough”. If your dates are overly dry, place them in a bowl (pit first) and soak in hot water for 15 minutes. After soaking, drain well and proceed with the recipe.

Storage: Store in the fridge in a sealed container for up to 2 weeks or freeze for up to 3 months.
