Step 3: DATES × NUTS

Picture of DATES × NUTS

Grind cashews and almonds in a dry mixer/grinder ( picture 1).

Separate out the bigger pieces of nuts from the finer particles ( picture 2 & 3).

Mix togather the big nut pieces and dates mash, with your hands to make a nice stiff dough kind of batter (picture 4).

Step 4: SHAPE

Picture of SHAPE

Take small chunks of the prepared dough/batter and shape them with your hands or cookie cutters as you wish (picture 1).

Since the dough is quite sticky it wont take much effort to coat these bites/cookies with the fine cashew+almond particles (picture 2).

Step 5: DIP

Picture of DIP

Blend mango chunks and cashews. Add water accordingly to adjust the consistency. Yummy dreamy creamy mango dip is ready to be served with your sweet bites/cookies. Do not add sugar to this mix as it is introduced to nullify the extra sweetness of dates. So enjoy this dip in its mild sweet flavour!

Step 6: SERVE
