Pineapple Almond Delights!

     This recipe is a discovery of mine from Sweet Potato Soul's blog. This young gal has an excellent blog - very impressive. I found her through Yum Universe (another amazing plant-based food website)! I chose to rename these little treats as I found simple "delight" in the fruitful flavors. Please make these & enjoy for your next snack, dessert, or for that mid-afternoon sugar craving! :-)
