2 Ingredient Coconut Date Balls

We LOVE healthy snack ideas here at The Healthy Mummy. And we especially love snacks that are not only nutritious but also easy to prepare.

Today we have a super simple recipe that involves just two ingredients (plus hot water).

2 Ingredient Coconut Date Balls

There is something so deliciously decadent about dates. Though they do contain natural sugars, they are still great to enjoy in moderation as part of your healthy weight loss.

Dates contain protein, fibre, some B vitamins (including folate), iron, calcium and potassium.

These keep well in the fridge in an air-tight container. They are a great snack for kids too.
