Almond Fudgy Bites

A while back, I got a package of Larabar Bites… They’re soooo good! Have you tried them?… Dave certainly did, and devoured nearly all of them himself. Then he asked if I could make something like them at home.

The truth is, these tiny, fudgy bliss balls are so easy to make. No cooking or baking required, and you get 60+ balls out of the batch… I like to find a second set of hands for all that rolling 😉… Plus they’re a no added sugar treat (all the sweet comes from fruit). So they’re a healthy way to satisfy a chocolate craving.

Almond Fudgy Bites

A healthy, sugar-free way to curb those chocolate cravings.

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups Almonds
  • 1/2 cup Raisins
  • 1/2 cup tightly packed, Pitted Dates
  • 3 tbsp Cocoa Powder
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1/8 tsp Salt
  • 1 – 2 tbsp Water (if necessary)*
  • 3 tbsp Coconut Flour

 

Instructions:

Add the almonds, raisins, dates, cocoa powder, vanilla, and salt into a food processor. Blend until the mixture pulls together and forms a fudgy texture, if necessary, adding 1 or 2 tablespoons of water.

Using a teaspoon to measure, scoop some of the mixture and roll into a ball. Roll the ball into the coconut flour, then roll the ball between your hands to knock off excess flour (so only a very light dusting remains). Repeat with remaining mixture.

 

Notes:
*If your dates are very dry, you may need to add 1 or 2 tablespoons of water to help pull the mixture together. If your pitted dates are still soft, it is unlikely that you’ll need the water.

      Thank you 😊 … I checked out your bar recipe. It looks really good too!… Great point about homemade options producing less waste. We’ve become much more conscious about packaging and reducing our household garbage this past year.
