Date Nut Candy


These little confections are so delicious that your little one will never believe the ingredients are good for them too! If you prefer, use a mix of walnuts and cashews instead of all walnuts.


  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 3/4 cup walnuts
  • 1/4 cup chopped and pitted dates
  • 2 tablespoons agave nectar
  • 1 teaspoon canola oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons shredded coconut
  1. Place the oats and walnuts on a baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees F for 10 minutes, until toasted. Let cool.
  2. Transfer the oat mixture to a food processor and process for about 2 minutes, until the mixture resembles a nut butter.
  3. Add the dates, agave, oil, and vanilla, processing until blended.
  4. Divide the mixture into balls and roll in the coconut. Store, covered, in the fridge or at room temperature for up to 3 days.
