    Made these using a half teaspoon of sesame oil. Wish I wouldn’t have done that. Next time I will make them using light olive oil because all I taste is sesame it drowns out the dates and coconut. Otherwise this is a good recipe.  -  23 Dec 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I've made it twice, they were so good. I lowered the salt and decided I liked it better with the listed amount. I'm a Weight Watcher and they are 6 points, sadly. But, I'm pre-diabetic and the sweet from the dates along with the nuts isn't as bad as a lot of desserts.  -  10 Jan 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I made this recipe with coconut oil instead of sesame oil . I don’t like the flavour of sesame . I keep them in the freezer in a ziplock instead of the fridge . Good healthy snack .  -  05 Nov 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
