Energy bites made from dates, peanuts and cacao powder are a sweet, satisfying and healthy snack – it doesn’t get any better than this.
If you haven’t noticed, dates are one of my go to options when I want a sweet snack. They are naturally sweet, rich in fiber, vitamins and minerals. The versatility of these sweet little fruits still continues to amaze me. They taste just fine all by themselves and even better stuffed with nut butter. But when you blitz them up in a food processor, they morph into an incredibly delicious paste that tastes like caramel and. . . it’s good for you!
These bites literally take minutes to make. You will spend most of the time removing the pits from the dates. All you have to do is blend all of the ingredients in a food processor.
After a minute or two the mixture will turn into a thick paste
Roll the paste into balls and enjoy! You can coat them in chopped peanuts or eat them plain.
- Place dates, peanuts and cacao powder in food processor and process until mixture forms a ball
- Remove from food processor and refrigerate for 10 minutes
- Roll the mixture into half inch sized bites and roll in peanuts
