Sunday Snack

If necessity is the mother of invention, then is feeling peckish the father of snack creation? I made these up today when the cupboard looked bare. I totally love them.

1 cup whole dates
2 Tablespoons unsalted peanut butter
1 Tablespoon honey
1/16 teaspoon cayenne
pinch fine sea salt
  1. Pit the dates. Using the back of a strong fork, mash the dates into a course pulp.
  2. Mix cayenne and salt into peanut butter. Add honey and stir until blended.
  3. Fold peanut butter mixture into date pulp. It should make a stiff paste. Taste for seasoning. When thoroughly blended, pinch a piece off and, using the palms of your hands, roll into balls about 1.5 cm or one-half inch in diameter.
Serve at room temperature.
