Ingredients

3/4 cup flaked coconut
1/2 cup butter
1 (8 ounce) package dates, chopped
3/4 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup egg substitute
3/4 cup SPLENDA® , Granulated
3 1/2 cups crispy rice cereal


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Bake coconut, stirring occasionally, 5 to 6 minutes or until toasted. Set aside.


Melt butter in a large skillet over low heat. Add dates and pecans; cook over low heat, stirring constantly until dates are softened. Cool to touch (about 5 minutes). Beat egg substitute and SPLENDA® for 3 minutes at medium speed with an electric mixer; add to date mixture. Cook over low-heat, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens (about 3 minutes). Stir in rice cereal. Cool to touch. Shape into 1-inch balls. Roll in toasted coconut.
