Nutrition Information: 

Aside from being a great fiber source, Medjool dates contain several antioxidants such as phenolic acids, carotenoids and flavonoids that have anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory and brain-protective qualities. These date and nut-made truffles pack a nutrient-dense punch, and are a great sweet, yet satisfying treat.
