Hey Frenchies! It is almost the weekend and that means treat time, YAY!
This is a healthier alternative to having a sticky bun whilst getting that much needed sweet hit that you need to get you through the day. These super simple Nut and Date bites take no time to make and can be taken in kids lunch boxes as well as your own.
What I need
Makes 10-15 balls, depending on size
– 1 cup of medjool dates
– 3/4 of a cup of cashews
– 3/4 of a cup of walnuts or any other nut (I used walnuts and hazelnuts and cashews)
– 1 tablespoon of coconut oil
– 1 tablespoon of raw cacao powder/ Or cocoa powder if you don’t have any.
In a food processor, tip in all of the nuts and blend until it resembles a coarse flour consistency.
Add in your dates (de-stoned!), coconut oil and cocoa powder.
Blend until it comes together like a pastry would, it should look like this…
Then roll it it your hand in bite sized balls, leave to chill in the fridge for a bit then enjoy!
Let me know if you try these little balls of yumminess! I am off to make a cup of tea and have a few of these!
