When I was a little I loved sweets very much, like any child of my age. Candies, chewy caramel and waffles with lemon cream were my favorites. God, how much I loved them! Time passed and slowly I gave up of buying candies and all sorts of sweets, cookies etc. and instead I started to make them at home, taking care not only of the ingredients I use, but also of their quantity.
While I was making these dates truffles with pistachios and hazelnuts I remembered my childhood and those time when I was at my grandmother and I made “candy” out of wet soil from her garden. This I found very interesting at some recipes, the fact that they can give you certain emotions, good feelings and memories from ”the dusty trunk”.
About the today’s recipe, only good words! They are no bake truffles, very good, super fast to make, which can be eaten as fast as you made them, if you know what I mean. Just be careful that even though they are made without sugar and other harmful ingredients, but they are quite caloric if you eat them in large quantities. I recommend you to eat them when you need something sweet, between meals as a snack or even before some exercise for energy, thanks to dates and oats.
