SUPER NUT BITES

I had some ground almonds left after making almond milk so decision has been made. Today it is time for a treat. It is so easy to make and it tastes amazing. I do not have to even mention how healthy it is. The best thing about these super-mini-nut-balls is that there is no need to use the same ingredients every time you make them. There are many recipes, but you can use your imagination and ingredients you like the most. Dates and nut butter make the mixture sticky, so that is the base of the recipe. 

And that is how I made mine :)




SUPER NUT BITES / Makes about 14


INGREDIENTS:

  • 4 TBS ground almonds
  • 2 TBS raw almond butter
  • 16 − 20 finely chopped dates (you can use food processor)
  • 16 finely chopped pecans (again you can use food processor)
  • 1 tsp raw cacao powder
  • cinnamon (I love cinnamon so I use a lot)
  • pinch of sea salt

METHOD:

Place all ingredients in a bowl and mix well using your hand. The mixture should be sticky so then you tear some of it and shape small balls. Try to be gentle and do not press too hard when making shape. They will become more solid after placing them in the fridge for minimum one hour. 

* I sprinkled mine with more cinnamon.
