In a food processor, pulse the dates to create a thick paste.
Add the walnuts, vanilla and 1/4 cup of the coconut and pulse until incorporated and a thick paste forms again.
I’m still soul searching and I have it narrowed down to a couple words but I’m still waiting for the aha moment. Speaking of the new year, I love this time because there is so much promise and possibility in the air.
The gyms are packed, people are getting serious about losing holiday/winter weight and overall, making plans for a brighter future.
But sadly, those plans usually die out before the end of January.
My goal for myself and for you is to keep it going!
So I headed her advise and started incorporating natures candy into my repertoire. But dates are not the only superfood in this delicious recipe. It has nearly four times the antioxidant power of dark chocolate which is more than 20 times that of blueberries.
Essential fatty acids, protein and calcium, among many other nutrients are also present. These little date bites are chocolatey, sweet, crunchy and oh so satisfying!
Using a spatula, transfer the date mixture to a medium bowl.
Pour the remaining 1/4 cup coconut into a separate small, shallow bowl.
If you’re looking for a new healthy snack to satisfy your afternoon cravings, I have just the recipe!
These Peanut Date Bites require only 3 ingredients to make and are absolutely delicious.
I made this recipe with snacking in mind, however I have found that I really enjoy these bites as dessert too!
