Date Logs

Another raw sweet to add to your collection of vegan recipes...from the book, "Raw Energy" (2009) by Stephanie Tourles.

Date Logs

15 Medjool dates, pitted
1 cup dried (finely shredded) unsweetened coconut
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
pinch sea salt

Soak the dates for 4 hours in purified water to cover by 1 inch. Drain and reserve the soak water to use in smoothies or just to drink. Put the dates, coconut, cinnamon, and salt in a bowl. Using your hands, mash and knead the ingredients until the coconut is incorporated into the moist dates and a stiff dough ball forms.

Pinch off pieces of the dough and roll into nuggets or log shapes. Store in a tightly sealed container in the fridge for up to two weeks or in the freezer for up to 3 months. They will not get hard, just firm, in the freezer.
