Monday seems to become the day to post dessert recipes. Coincidence? I think not. These raw bites are the go-to in our house when there is no real dessert to be found (i.e. chocolate or cookies). They are super easy and quick to make and only require a few ingredients.
I adapted the recipe from one of Ashlae's genius creations and really, there is no messing this up. Basically, as long as you get a sticky dough that tastes nice, you're good.
Raw Coconut Cacao Date Bites
1 cup raw almonds (cashews, walnuts, hazelnuts etc. all work, too)
3/4 cup shredded coconut
3-4 tbsp cacao powder
6-8 medjool dates, pitted and soaked 15 minutes
2 tbsp raw nut milk (or any other milk)
1 pinch sea salt
In a food processor fitted with the S-blade, blend the almonds, shredded coconut and cacao powder into a fine meal. Add the dates, milk, and salt; blend until a dough starts to form. Form into bite sized balls and optionally roll in more shredded coconut, cacao nibs or any other seeds you have on hand. Transfer to an air tight container and store in the fridge or freezer, depending on how long you want to keep them. In this house, they don't last longer than 2-3 days...
