These yummy no-bake bites are packed with nutrients. They come together very quickly, using only your food processor, and as a bonus, they are freezer friendly. You can use any nuts you have on hand and switch them up. I recently used pecans and walnuts and they came out great. I also love to use dark chocolate cocoa powder and dark chocolate chips. To make this recipe vegan, just your favorite vegan chocolate chips. I also think they would taste amazing rolled in shredded coconut. Eat them as part of an on-the-go breakfast, a quick snack, or dessert.
*Makes 12 servings*
3/4 cup raw almonds
1/4 cup raw cashews
1 cup dates (Medjool, pitted)
2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp sea salt
3 tbsp chocolate chips
Add everything to the food processor except the chocolate chips. Process until well combined. The dough should become sticky. Add chocolate chips and pulse 1-2 times or until the chocolate chips will break into some smaller pieces.
Wet your hands slightly. Use your hands to form dough into balls with about 1 rounded tablespoon per ball. If you find your dough isn’t sticky enough, add 1-2 tbsp of water and mix again. Store in the refrigerator or freeze for later!
