Date Coconut Balls

"Sweet without sugar! Nuts and granola add slight crunchiness."

1/2 cup margarine
one 8 oz (225 g) package pitted dates, chopped
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3/4 cup pecans, chopped
3/4 cup plain granola cereal
3/4 cup shredded coconut

1. In heavy saucepan combine margarine, dates and cinnamon. Cook over low
heat, stirring constantly, until margarine is melted and blended thoroughly
with dates.

2. Chill until mixture is firm enough to be molded and hold its shape.

3. Stir in pecans and granola.

4. Form tablespoonfuls of mixture into balls. Roll in coconut to coat

Makes about 2 1/2 dozen.

*for vegan and gluten-free options, use vegan margarine and gluten-free granola
