No Blend Chocolate Date Log And Rolls

These wickedly delicious, easy, healthy snacks are perfect for school, work lunch boxes and parties. They are great to curb the 3pm munchies and are a tasty, refined sugar free option.

They are made with dates and are full of fibre, which aids in lowering cholesterol and in good heart and digestive health. They also contain the minerals calcium, zinc, iron, copper and magnesium - involved in lowering blood pressure and reducing stroke risk.

I add tahini for a nutty flavour but you can exclude or swap for almond or peanut butter if you'd prefer and don't need a nut free option.

These are great chocolate flavoured snacks that you can roll or make into balls that taste great as is, or frozen. They are also gluten, lactose and nut free.
