Bolitas Recipe {Almond, Date, and Coconut Balls}

17 Apr

You look at bolitas and must ask yourself, what the heck does that mean??? In spanish, it means little balls. Back in the day, when I was a young girl in Miami, my aunt would make this recipe and I was in wanderlust of what combination could provide such a good taste. Years later, I found out that this cookie dough like consistency is made of pure fruit and nuts! A healthy cookie like treat? I’m always up for it and really stand by the notion that the best kind of products are homemade.
