These little bites are about as healthy as a dessert can get. Experiment with different kinds of nuts and other add-ins to get different flavors. So far the below combination is my favorite – it’s very Almond Joy-esque.
I accidentally bought dates with pits. Fortunately, the pit pops right out when the date is cut in half length-wise. Dates are tricky to measure because they are so big, but the recipe is pretty forgiving. If your “dough” doesn’t come together, add a few more dates.
Adapted from Chocolate-Covered Katie
1 1/2 c dates, halved
3/4 c almonds
1/2 c coconut
3-4 T cocoa powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
1) Combine all ingredients in the food processor.
2) Blend until the “dough” sticks together when pinched; this may take a few minutes.
3) Form into 1″ balls.
