These nutty treats are sweet and chocolaty. Currants, dates, pecans and honey are blended into a dough, and formed into candies.

Great gluten free recipe with good variety of ingredients. I substituted dried cranberries for the golden raisins and mixed nuts for the pecans bc it was on hand. I also added 2 Tbsp flax seeds. I used less honey and added 2 Tbsp coconut oil. These are not sweet but will provide a good energy boost before workouts. Thanks for sharing this Sal. Read More
