Cacao Bites (yes another one!)

_MG_2355

Another date ball? Yes sir. We finished off the batch of  banana bread bites quickly and were anxious for more. If the first recipe intrigued you, I guarantee this bad boy will have your mouth watering. Hope you enjoy!

On to the recipe…

  1. In a food processor blend 2C almonds
  2. Once blended add in 6 pitted dates, 1/2C raisins, 3/4C unsweetened cacao powder, 3T maple syrup, 3T water, 1T coconut oil & a pinch of himalayan salt – blend until smooth consistency (~1-5minutes dependent on your texture preference)
  3. Roll out mini date balls with your hands (roughly the size of a ping pong ball)
  4. Dip the bites into raw/unsweetened shredded coconut flakes & set aside

These definitely have more of a dessert twist to them than the banana bread bites, but who says you cant have dessert any time of the day? Like the other recipe I placed the bites in a zip-lock baggie & stuck in the freezer. Perfectly chewy & no thawing required!
