The beginning of the Christmas season is synonymous with the start of a sweetness overlaod:  from gingerbread to biscuits and candied apples … It is a really hard to keep yourself under control with all the oversupply of these traditional sweets. Even though I love classic Christmas cookies, I wanted to create some variety this year. That’s why I decided to upgrade the german “Spekulatius”(spivced christmas biscuit) and turn it into a fluffy Christmas praline.

To make these sweet balls as healthy as possible, I used my homemade date paste for sweetening. The date paste is very easy to prepare and a perfect alternative to sugar. It also turns the dough into a malleable mass due to its moist consistency.

Since I have used spekulatius from the store and this usually contains sugar, I can’t call these balls sugar-free. But at least I have tried to make these pralines as healthy as possible, so that a care-free feasting is quite possible 🙂

These vegan spekulatius pralines are easy to prepare and really delicous! Already the first batch of these balls was gone like nothing and the second charge is almost gone as well. That’s why I don’t want to put you on racks and start right away with the recipe.
