Recipe: Salted Caramel Energy Balls
If you've never enjoyed a really fresh medjool date, please take the time now- it's like nature's candy, with it's sweet, caramel-like flavor. Combined with some almonds and a hefty pinch of sea salt, and you've got salted caramel bliss- with only four ingredients. These have become a favorite snack in our house, and I think they'll be for you, too!
