Nut-free Sweet Bites

If your are at all like me, you like a bite of sweet after dinner. I avoid refined sugar and always opt for fruits or dark chocolate to satisfy my desire.

I often make protein bites, or bliss balls, and keep them in the fridge for a quick snack. I add dried fruits and honey to naturally sweeten them and that’s just what I did in today’s experimental recipe. These bites are a sweeter take on the chocolate almond balls I recently made, but minus the nuts for a safe lunchbox option as nuts are rarely allowed in school, plus they are packed with fiber.
In a food processor, finely chop
1 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut flakes
4 pitted dates
2 Tblspn ground flax
2 Tblspn raw honey
2 Tblspn tahini butter
1 Tblspn chia seeds
Transfer to a glass or stainless steel bowl and add a small handful of dark chocolate chips (optional). Mix well with a spoon or your hands, and refrigerate for 20 minutes to harden slightly.
Once cool, roll mixture into bite sized balls and store in fridge until ready to eat!! nut free sweet bites
