3 cups almond flour

½ cup nut butter of choice

½ cup honey

3 eggs

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp salt

1½ cups baking dates, pitted and chopped

Preheat oven to 350° F. In a large mixing bowl, combine all the ingredients except the dates until smooth. Line a cookie sheet with unbleached parchment paper. Scoop about a tablespoon of batter and roll into a round ball. In the middle of the ball, press ½ teaspoon of dates into the center, rolling again to surround the dates with cookie dough. Place on a cookie sheet, flattening slightly. Bake for 15 minutes. Remove and let cool before serving.
