Date and Nut Bites
Date and Nut Bites (gluten free, dairy free, paleo, and vegan)
When this recipe was first created I wanted to call these tasty morsels “Meg’s Balls”… LOL… My sisters laughed at the idea of me offering my delicious balls for others to enjoy. So we settled on Date and Nut Bites because, well, that’s what they are!
Think chocolate truffle meets Ferrero Rocher, only completely guilt free with lots of benefit. Low in sugar and perfect to eat anytime of the day. These superfood bites are sweet and satisfying!
I first got inspired after eating raw truffles at a local restaurant The Source Cafe, a healthy foodie restaurant in Hermosa Beach. After perusing cookbooks and a few of my favorite foodie bloggers sites, I landed on this specific nut and date ratio. Since creating this recipe, I have swapped out almonds for macadamia nuts, cashews for hazelnuts, added peanut butter instead of almond, and many many more variations. Use this for guaranteed success or get creative and make these your own! We can’t wait for you to try!!

Place all nuts and spices into food processor and pulse until into finer tiny pieces.
Next add almond butter, coconut oil, and vanilla if desired and pulse until combined. Ingredients should form together into a dough like ball.
Use a tablespoon-er and scoop mixture into your palm. Roll dough together to form a tiny ball.
Eat as is! Or you can refrigerator for 10 minutes until chilled.
Store in refrigerator and good for 3+ weeks… if they last that long!
