  • When refrigerated, coconut oil hardens up and makes the bites more snack-able.
  • Dates can be chopped up with a normal kitchen knife on a cutting board.
  • Walnuts could be crushed with a mortar and pestle, folded in a cloth and smashed… or you could use the bottom of a small jar or supplement bottle in a bowl if you don’t have anything else handy!
