Frances Van Vynckt, 78, combined dates, toasted rice cereal and coconut into an easy no-bake treat that won EatingWell's 2008 cookie contest.

"Really easy to make and taste just great. I used splenda instead of regular sugar. As for the comment of how to make them stay softer I would say eat them quicker. "

The recipe is good.


A lot of people of complaning that the ball don't hold together very well but mind did just fine. I used pitted medjool dates and chopped them myself. Those dates are nice and soft and that's probably why mine fared better than most. The recipie is very sweet. I wonder if you could increase the dates and reduce the sugar.

A lot of work

I liked the combination of flavors and since the recipe says "easy and fast," I chose to make a batch. Well, they're not that easy or fast. While combining the ingredients is indeed a cinch, squeezing and forming these into balls is a headache. Every time I squeezed one into a ball in my hand, a soon as I opened my hand the ball (more of a log) was dismantled. Some also just disintegrated when I set them down. I ended up discarding the last half cup or so since I was tired of trying to shape them. And if your hands become sore like mine do, this recipe is not for you.

Taste good
The men LOVE these

I have shared these at two different x-mas exchanges. Both times, I was asked for the recipe by attendees, as their husbands loved these cookies.

don't roll them

I got tired of making balls of these. They didn't seem to hold together very well, so I mashed them into a flat slab and covered with plastic and put them in the frig. Later I cut them in squares and they were still pretty. They are pretty sweet though.

taste good, and are a little unusual
