Super Sweet & Healthy Mochi Dessert

I came up with this recipe when I wasn't eating sugar, flour or dairy. I felt great and had so much energy, but I still craved a sweet dessert once and a while. I got creative in the kitchen and the result was so delicious. It reminds me of jelly donuts, but without the added sweetener, flour or dairy.

The ingredients:
Mejoul Dates
Shredded Coconut

Cut the Mochi in 1.5" squares, then bake in a pre-heated 450° F oven for 8-10 minutes. While the Mochi is cooking, mash the strawberries, dates and shredded coconut together.  When the Mochi is done, remove from oven and top with the fruit mixture. Enjoy!

*Mochi is a traditional Asian snack, made of rice. It is wheat-free, gluten-free and dairy free. When baked, the Mochi puffs up and is chewy on the inside yet crunchy on the outside. I use Grainaissance brand Mochi, which I purchase at Whole Foods.
