Sweet and salty energy bites reminiscent of the taste of salted cashews, caramel and coconut! Only 4 ingredients are needed for this dreamy snack or a healthier dessert.
- 1 cup < span class ="wprm-recipe-ingredient-name">wrapped pitted dates (measured by pitting // we prefer Medjool)
- 1/3 cup unsalted roasted cashews (if nut-free, underseed of choice, e.g . B. hemp or sunflower // raw cashews are fine too // if your nuts are salty, add less salt to the mix)< /span>
- 1/4 teaspoon sea salt, plus more to taste
< li class="wprm-recipe ingredient" style="list- style-type: disk;">1/4 span> cup unsweetened grated or grated coconut (or less than half the amount in coconut flour and work your way to a more bite-sized cake texture)< /li>
- On the way to a Food Processor Add pitted dates, cashews, coconut and sea salt (adjust amount as needed if nuts are salty). Note: If you don’t have a food processor you can try using a blender, but dates can be difficult for blenders due to their sticky nature, so use a slow speed whenever possible and blend rather than blend.< /div>Pulse until mixture forms a dough and starts to clump (~30 seconds up to 1 minute). If it’s too dry or crumbly and doesn’t stick when squeezed between two fingers, add more pitted dates (just make sure your dates are sticky and fresh or it’ll just dry out the mixture.) If it does still dry and crumbly, you can add a little cashew butter to help them shape (optional).Scoop 1 ½ tablespoons (we love this scoop) and roll into balls. As written in the original recipe, approximately 9 scoops.Enjoy now or leftovers up to 1 week or up to 1 month in the freezer. We prefer them straight from the fridge for optimal flavor and texture!
