Pecan meal and Cinnamon/Cinnamon Sugar (for rolling)
Soak the dates in boiling water for 30 minute to soften them.
While the dates soak, combine pecan meal and cinnamon or cinnamon sugar for coating. If you are unable to find pecan meal at the store, instead take 1 cup of pecans and blend in a high speed food processor.
Drain the dates and in a food processor and combine all ingredients until smooth.
Take about 2 tbsp of the mixture and roll into a ball.
