A Crumb Donut Imitation

While surfing the internet one night I found these. Now, I love my coffee in the mornings, but I can just imagine how amazing these might taste with it. Don't you think? I don't have pitted dates in my cupboard right now or I would make these. Instead, I'm adding it to my collection here so I can make these when I pick up some dates. I can almost taste them right now... Yum!

Tastes Like Hostess Crumb Donuts Cookies

1 cup raw almonds
1 cup very soft, pitted dates
1/2 cup finely shredded banana squash
1/2 cup shredded coconut
More shredded coconut for rolling
Splash olive oil
1-2 tbs nutmeg
Sea salt

Put almonds in food processor and process to very fine
pieces. Add dates, a little at a time. Add splash of olive
oil, a little salt and a little vanilla. The mixture will
look like very coarse meal at first, and then all of a
sudden it will come together in one big ball.

Take the big ball out of the food processor and, using
your hands, mix in the shredded squash, the nutmeg and the
shredded coconut until it is all mixed in. Taste and add
more coconut or nutmeg if desired.

Roll the mixture into small balls, and roll in shredded
coconut to cover. Place on a plate in a single layer and
chill in the freezer until firm. After they are firm, you
can put them in a container; they will keep for a very
long time in the freezer.
