Date and Nut Logs-vegan sweets free from added sugar

A larger-than-life closeup reveals their true yumminess...
All week we've been munching on these amazing, naturally sweet fruit and nut snacks which my husband made. It all started with a bag of trail mix, a bag of sunflower seeds and a bag of dates from Poundland...

Using the grating attachment on our Magimix, he made a mixture of soaked and drained dates and trail mix- minus those annoying rock-hard banana chips. There were also sunflower seeds and carob powder, and the mixture was then shaped and rolled in desiccated coconut. The sweets were kept at room temperature in an airtight container, and although there were lots of them, they soon disappeared!
