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!!
