Ingredients
Chocolate Coconut Bites Ingredients
  • 12 large – pitted Dates (I purchase at Costco)
  • ½ cup – organic walnuts
  • ½ cup – organic toasted almonds
  • ½ cup – organic cashes
  • ¼ tsp. – sea salt
  • ½ tsp. – pure vanilla extract
  • ½ cup – organic unsweetened coconut flakes
  • ½ cup – natural cacao powder (or cocoa powder)
  • ½ cup – melted extra virgin coconut oil
  • 1 cup - organic unsweetened coconut flakes (for rolling the bites)
Instructions
Chocolate Coconut Bites Simple Steps
  1. Add dates, walnuts, almonds, and cashew (all organic nuts) into a food processor and process until all is well blended. Turn off the processor. Using a silicone or wooden spatula (best option), scrape down the mixture from the sides of the food processor and pulse it again. Pause and clean the sides of the processor as needed.
  2. Then add sea salt, pure vanilla extract and process well for another minute or so.
  3. Next, add organic unsweetened coconut flakes, and organic cacao powder (not pictured). Process again until all combined. With the food processor running, add melted coconut oil and blend until all are well combined.
  4. Using an ice cream scoop (tablespoon in size), scoop out a heap of the mixture, squeeze it in your hands and then shape into a ball.
  5. Finally, coat it with coconut flakes. Place the finished bites onto a plate and refrigerate for 30 minutes to firm up before transferring them in a storage container. And close it with a lid.
  6. Store in the fridge for up to a week, if you're lucky enough for them to last that long. Enjoy with a cup of tea or coffee as a dessert or a snack!
