A to Z challenge, a challenge &it was initiated by me with my other blogger friends and made Facebook Group, wherein a group of bloggers come together and we choose key ingredients alphabetically to cook and post a dish every alternate month. 


This is our 4th post for the challenge. We choose key ingredients alphabetically to cook and post a dish every alternate month.
This is my 4th dish in the A to Z challenge series,
A- Homemade Apple Jam (no preservatives)
B - Beetroot Carrot Sandwich
C - Black Chana Masala
This time I thought of doing something simple and easy to prepare.


Dates are like naturals candy, adding natural sweetness to food without the need for any extra sugar. These healthy, portable and quick 3-ingredient almond coconut date rolls are a great way to satisfy a late-morning or afternoon sweet tooth!

There is something so deliciously decadent about dates. Though they do contain natural sugars, they are still great to enjoy in moderation as part of your healthy weight loss.


Dates contain protein, fiber, some B vitamins, iron, calcium and potassium.

These keep well in the fridge in an air-tight container. They are a great snack for kids too. My toddler loves sweets and he really liked it! See below picture his cute hands picked the balls easily :)
