It sounds fake…or super dry and lacking of taste when you put it that way. But I have been seeing dessert recipes online that are based around dates for a while now and when I was at the grocery store a little while ago I decided to pick some up for when i became bored enough to try something new.
There are TONS of variations on this everywhere and I just decided to use which ever nuts I had on hand and since I didn’t have any coconut flakes, those didn’t make it in there either. But the REALLY taste like brownie bites! This is a perfect little recipe to have just a few morsels in the refrigerator for when you are craving something filled with chocolate.
|1 Cup Sliced Almonds||1/2 Cup Chopped Walnuts|
|Pinch of Salt||1 Teaspoon Vanilla|
|1 Cup Pitted Dates||1/3 Cup Cocoa Powder, Unsweetened|
1. In a blender, blend the walnuts and almonds until they are fine. Then add in the pinch of salt, vanilla, dates and cocoa powder. After blending for 30 seconds, add in a tablespoon of water to get everything to stick together.
2. Scoop out about a tablespoon of the mix and roll them into a ball in your hands. Refrigerate until you are ready to eat them!
They are so easy to make and definitely taste better when they are cold. All they have in them is fruit and nuts! You can’t go wrong!
What is your favorite cheat snack that isn’t really bad for you??
