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.
I love to see your pictures! 😃 If you try this (or any of my recipes), snap a picture and tag me @themisfitbaker on Instagram so I can see your version.
Almond Fudge Bites
Recipe Type: dessert / snack
Makes: 60 bites (approx.)
- 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
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.
*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.
