Earl grey infused date and almond treats

By August 18, 2016 , ,

I'm almost embarrassed to write this recipe it is so simple, but hey, I can't do complex all the time, can I?

I noticed I had a surfeit of dates in my cupboard. They're normally lurking in case I fancy cooking sticky toffee pudding. So this time, I fancied doing something a bit different with the dates and wanted a quick and easy snack with a sweet kick so this is how this recipe came about.

100ml earl grey tea cold
300g dates stones removed
100g unsalted almonds

Infuse the dates in the earl grey for 2-3 hours
Drain the dates and place in a food processor with the almonds, reserve about 5 - 10ml of the tea
Pulse the dates till they resemble a rough paste
Add about 5ml of the tea to loosen the mixture somewhat but it needs to be relatively stiff and pulse some more
Roll into small balls

You can add some variety to this recipe by rolling the balls in desiccated coconut, cocoa powder or sesame seeds.
