These were developed for Michaela’s friend’s daughter, who, she assures us, raves about them! They have no refined sugar, wheat, oil, gluten, or dairy (other than eggs) and are a sweet treat ready in 30 minutes! Michaela suggests doubling the dates if your kids are used to pretty sweet treats. Top with a slice of banana if you’re feeling wild.
