These crunchy gluten free date balls rolled in coconut are a crowd pleaser! They're easy to make and a delicious sweet treat without too much guilt!


  • 2 cups sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 8 ounce packages of chopped dates
  • 4 cups rice krispies
  • 1.5 - 2 cups chopped nuts (pecans or walnuts are delicious)
  • coconut flakes


  1. In a sauce pan on medium heat, mix together to the sugar and eggs

  2. Stir in the chopped dates and cook until the mixture comes away from the pan and starts to bubble/fizz (yep, that's a technical term :-P)

  4. Stir in the rice krispies and chopped nuts

  5. Dip your fingers in water, roll the mixture into a ball and then roll in coconut flakes
