This post is very special to me, for the fact that my elder daughter made these healthy treats all by herself without any help from me. Right from selecting the dry fruits to decorating the treats she enjoyed making these little hearts on the occasion of Valentine’s day. I know its a late post, but as they say, its BETTER LATE THAN NEVER!! Right?!

I just clicked her work into these lovely photographs with her pretty hands decorating the little treats. This being a No-Cook-No-Bake recipe she was very much confident about, hence came forward by herself to give a try.

Alterations you can make:

The ingredients I mentioned below, are what we used while my daughter made them. But, you can use any dry fruits and any nuts to go into this super easy sweet treat. 

And just eliminate the honey / maple syrup too, which makes the recipe completely Whole Foods Plant Based.I tried both ways which turned excellent either way.

You can grind/process the ingredients coarsely or even smoothly. As per your desired consistency.

Health Benefits:

These are extremely nutritious with full of natural sweetness, fibre and calories in each fruit. Dates are rich source of natural iron. While the nuts are an excellent source of protein & edible fiber. Plant Based + Gluten free + Power packed healthy treat is what we can say to define them!!! 

I am super sure that whoever reads/sees this post will definitely try this recipe and for sure will enjoy eating them. 🙂
