Alex, those look pretty yummy, but I question the sugar content if the dried pineapple and dried mango have been dried with sugar. What about using medjool dates as an alternate? At least the refined sugars won’t be sneaking their way in!
Hey Polly! I am able to find both dried mango and pineapple without any added sugar 🙂 Trader Joe’s or the bulk section have these options! Medjool dates would be a fine substitute, though.
These sound so good! I think I can actually get my daughter to eat healthy and like it with these!
I loved the recipe never probe but it intrigues me definitely to taste
These look great! Like fruity little truffles lol! Can’t wait to give these a go!
I love the raw balls because they are quick to put together and create quite a few servings that will last the week (I double the recipe). I enjoy these on my long runs as a great energy source due to the natural sugar.
The only thing I can get the kids in my family to eat that is healthy! These don’t taste healthy they taste like they should be bad for you which is…good!
My kids love these healthy treats and are begging for more. I will double my batch last time as another reviewer suggested ! I am a nut fanatic so I love the taste the macadamia nuts add. Very simple and easy recipe to throw together. Another recipe that deserves 10 stars!
It was quick and easy to make. The tropical flavors were fitting this summer weather. It’s hard to resist eating more of these than I should.
