Coconut Almond Date Rolls (+ a video!!)

Coconut Almond Date Rolls- gluten free and vegan, these date rolls are SO easy to make and are the perfect little snack!

I’ve been sitting on this recipe for weeks because (!!!!) I made a video to go along with it and needed time to edit it because I’m video challenged for sure!

Thank goodness that I’m not much of a perfectionist or else this video would have NEVER been finished. I really want to start doing recipe videos (maybe even some with me in them??) so I figured that I had to start somewhere. I decided that this recipe was perfect for my first recipe video since the recipe itself is so super simple.

Between filming and editing, I’m embarrassed to tell you how much time I spent on that ONE minute video. Practice makes perfect, right? Like I said, I’m really hoping to continue making these videos for you and my hope is that they’ll get better and better each time :)

I saw these Almond Coconut Date Rolls at the store for a rather ridiculous price. I took a quick mental note of the ingredients and decided to try making them at home. As it turns out, they’re SUPER easy to make! Basically just process all the ingredients in a food processor for a minute, roll them up into little balls, and let them sit in the fridge or freezer for a bit to harden.

Easy!

The first time I made these, I rolled them into balls about 1 tablespoon big which was the size they were at the store. The second time I went with slightly smaller ones that were closer to about 1 teaspoon large.

I store mine in the fridge where they can stay good for a few weeks. It’s been nice having them around for those times where I just want to eat a little something between meals and actual snack times.

Let me know what you think about my little video! :D Even though I’ve already posted the recipe, I’m thinking of making my next recipe video of the Vegan Peanut Butter Pie that I posted a couple weeks ago.

Happy Hump Day, friends!!

  1. What a great recipe! I love anything with coconut oil and they sound really healthy with the dates, spices, and nuts too. You really did a great job with the video. It takes so much time to not only shoot it with proper lighting, but editing it soooo time-consuming. I wouldn’t have known it was your first video. It was nice meeting you recently!

  2. These look and sound amazing, yum!

  6. This came out awesome !!! I will decrease the salt next time, it’s a little too salty for me. I also used walnut pieces instead of almonds because I was out.
