These little bites of holiday heaven are so dang good! I promise you cant eat just one. I make these during the holiday season as sweet treats for everyone. I also make these during the summer as I just love these little things. They are so festive and delicious.
3/4 cup dates
1 tbsp molasses
3/4 tsp ginger powder
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp cinnamon
3/4 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup chopped almonds
- In a bowl add the dates and fill with hot water to cover. Allow them to sit for about 20 minutes to soften. Drain.
- In a food processor add the dates, molasses, ginger, nutmeg, and cinnamon and blend until paste forms.
- Add the oats and almonds and blend until dough forms. Remove from the processor and roll into balls and place in an airtight container.
They are travel-friendly and kid-friendly. They are also family approved.

Thank you so much for stopping by. Let me tell you a little bit about me. I am a mom of two, a stepmom of 1, two wild and silly pups, and I have the best husband in the world. I also have a love of cooking and baking. I am always in the kitchen finding new recipes to try, recreating old family recipes, and reminiscing about the old ways. I am vintage at heart and love all things old and cast iron. I love spending time with the family and pups and just going where life takes us.
I created my blog a few years ago with my youtube channel because I thought that If I shared a recipe, then people just might like to see just how the recipe is put together. I share all of my family recipes along with today's recipes. Whether it is old-fashioned recipes, sourdough, einkorn, desserts, sheet pan meals, or even crockpot meals, they are all absolutely delicious.
I spend hours, if not days, creating and dabbling with recipes to make sure they are the best for you and your family. All of my recipes are family tested and family-approved before they are ever posted to my blog or youtube channel.
Every now and again I will share some behind-the-scenes fun and chaos of our creations and family adventures. I hope you all stick around and join us here at The Southern Rustic and see what we cook up in my kitchen. You can find all of my social media information in the Contact/Donate OR the Social Media Accounts tab on my home page. There I have listed my Instagram pages, YouTube channel, Email, and other information so you can easily find everything in one place.
I hope that you all have a wonderful, wonderful day and I will see you soon.
