Dates biscuit bites – perfect filling snack


Recipe from a very good friend of mine who is also an excellent cook, Floor Meijs.


  • 350 g dates without pits
  • Mixed nuts you like, cut into medium pieces
  • 8 digestives biscuits
  • 150 g butter or coconut oil
  • 4 tablespoons honey
  • Coconut flakes (optional)
  • Cinnamon (optional)


  1. Put the dates and the butter in a pan on low temperature, so they wont burn, but they will become soft. Occasionally stir.
  2. In the meantime, crush the cookies (not too small, you want pieces as big as your thumb approximately).
  3. Put the cookies and the nuts into the pan with the dates. Stir it all really good.
  4. Add the honey and the cinnamon. Keep on stirring, make sure everything mixes okay.
  5. Then put all of the date/nut/biscuit dough into a baking tin with baking paper on the inside. Spread the mixture evenly over the baking tin. Let it rest for a few minutes so the cake can lose heat.
  6. Then put some plastic foil over the baking tin and put it in the fridge.
  7. Keep it overnight or for a few hours.
  8. When its stiff and cold, get the cake out of the tin and cut it into pieces, as big as you like.
  9. Optional:cover them with the coconut flakes (almond powder is also good).
