Ive seen in the stores the coconut date rolls.
i think they may have been processed so they aren t raw
i am thinking of making some
putting the dates in a food processr
to make a puree
then forming them into rolls and roliing them in coconut shredded
does anyone know how to make these
is that right what i said how to make them
or am i missing someting?

you've got the right idea. if you want, you could try adding some almond to the date mix. i like to put the dates in the food processor, then roll an almond up in the date mixture, then roll in coconut....YUM

This is how you do it. You first blend the dates with added water until you get the right consistency. You will have to make it pretty thin just to be able to blend it. You then pour it out into a bowl. To the date mixture you add almond mill (almonds blended in a coffee grinder) until the mixture firms up and you form a large ball. You should have it to the same consistency as raw biscuit dough. You then pinch off chunks to form marble sized balls and it is at that point, you roll it in the coconut.

the date rolls in the store don't have allmonds in them
they have one on top
so whynot just blend the dates with a little water
then roll them?
never considered adding the almond meal.
my children a picky and m ay not like the added almond meal though
thans again ! :)

I make these by soaking a bunch of dates (enough that they will blend well in a food processor), draining, then processing. Then I mix coconut with the date mixture and roll - then top with an almond. I have found that the dates alone are difficult to roll. Next time I will try the almond meal with the date though - sounds delicious! :D
I am guessing the ones you are trying to copy are the ones from Trader Joes.
By looking at the package ingredients, I thought they were fine. It doesn't state they are raw, though. They are delicious. I will try one of the above recipes. Thanks Samuel and rawcanadagirl.

that if i refridgerate the pureed dates overnight
the next day they are not sticky so i don't have to add almond poweder
and can be formed into bars and rolled in the coconut
with no problem.
these taste exactly like the ones
i used to buy on the islands
all i need to add is half an almond to decorate to top of bars
to complete the recipie.
i am going to try to dehydrate the dates to make date sugar.
to replace regulr and bown sugar. has anyone tried this to make sugar?
take care :)

FYI: I have looked into those prepackaged ones and they ARE NOT RAW!!!! I used to buy the ones from Shiloh Farms and I called them that is when they told me that they're not raw. Then someone else had told me that when you see pitted dates, they are typically heated during the pitt removal process, so I'm guessing the TJ's ones are not raw either.
