    Hi Everyone, just made this and after reading the comments about the mixture being to dry and crumbly I added 15g coconut oil to my 1 and a half mix and it turned out perfectly. So if you think your mixture is too crumbly and dry just add to the actual recipe about 5 to 10 g coconut oil after mixing in the dates.

    Dry & crumbly for me unfortunately.

    Great recipe for a last minute dessert when you don’t have time to bake. I added some dried figs as I was a bit low on dates, and it was fab! Thank you!

    I added the mixture to muffin moulds and rolled some into balls for something a little different - could definitely play with the final presentation of these tasty treats. Also, you could certainly experiment with flavour-maybe adding some orange to give a jaffa taste.

    Yummy, had to add water to get it so it wasn't crumbly.  Next time I will try nice big plump juicy dates, mine were just too dry I think.

    Tasty, however mine was dry and crumbly too, I only had 30g of chia seeds left so I used sesame seeds to make up. I think my dates were too dry.

    Delicious, easy and healthy

    Nice treat without the guilt!

    Love this!! So delicious! I didn't have fresh dates so used sun dried ones and just did step 4 for an extra 15 seconds.
