  1. Could figs be subbed for the dates? I don’t have dates, but have inherited a copious amount of figs.

    Hi Jen. I think dried figs would work really well in this. You could probably use any dried fruit and get good results. I have made a version of this using prunes too. Let me know how they turn out

    I make these all the time! (there is usually lots of ‘ball’ jokes when I make them) except I use hemp instead of cashews. My favourite is to add a bit of cocoa and some sugar-free peanut butter.

    These are a great sweet treat for GF, dairy-free! I use my favorite Lara Bar flavors to inspire different add-ins. Hooray for homemade!
