Remember this? :]
It’s here! :D This is what I sent out to my match, Sara! I kinda looked through her recipes (they all look so good!) to get a feel for what she might like and decided to make something with dates, since she said they’re one of her favorite sweeteners. :] Recipe adapted from here! I added almonds and hemp seeds to give it a more crunchy texture. I actually do not own a food processor, so it was slightly difficult getting it to the consistency I would’ve liked them to be, but all in all, I think they turned out okay!(?)
Her specifications were, “As un-processed as possible. Preferable no white flour, white sugar, or vegetable oil,” which was perfect, since I tend to prefer desserts that are also on the healthier side of the spectrum. (That was basically what I requested too, but I never received anything. ;_; sad times. I’ve been eating like the plague lately though, so maybe it’s for the best.) I actually only ended up having one person to send something to since there were less of us with similar restrictions.
