For Day 2 of BM #45, here is an addictive and healthy dessert for the kids and adults as well.

As there is some chocolate in here, my older one was reluctant to have these. But when I told her that there is very minimal cocoa powder, she gingerly took a bite and wouldn't stop popping more of these into her mouth!! 

And that is the reason why I didn't garnish with more chocolate!!

Date-Almond Nuggets
