Cherry Chocolate Almond Butter Bites (Post by HP)
We’ve hit the 10 day mark of the raw vegan challenge! So I thought I’d share with you a simple easy, delicious snack recipe to keep you going during the day when you need a lil pick-me-up. It’s so important to be prepared for the day. And these Cherry Chocolate Almond Butter Bites are perfect!
I usually prepare a few dessert items ahead of the challenge. But we were house sitting for my in-laws and their cute puppy. I didn’t want to make many things and have to haul them home. I started out a little discombobulated.
Once we got settled in around the 5th day I realized I had no sweet treats and I decided to whip up something from the pantry items I had stashed in the house. Having almond butter, cherries, cacao, coconut and dates as my staples I thought ‘you can’t go wrong with these ingredients’ and so I created these delicious Cherry Chocolate Almond Butter bites this week.
The first day I made them I couldn’t stop eating them. Chocolate and Cherries have such a great affinity for each other, right? And almond butter just makes everything better!
I shared a couple with my husband the next night with my husband. He said he thought they were good. But sometimes I’m not sure if he means it. Well the other day I found him eating a few he got for himself. So that made it official… he really likes them.
Friends stopped by the other day and I shared them. They loved them so much they asked for the recipe. So I guess this is a keeper!
These Cherry Chocolate Almond Butter bites are chewy, sweet and so satisfying when you’re craving something sweet. They’re gluten-free, protein packed and make a great on the go snack. You can even eat them for breakfast. They’re perfect for those mornings when you don’t have much time, even to make a smoothie. Just grab several of these bites to go.
Servings 25 Tablespoon size bites
1 cup shredded coconut
1/2 cup dried tart cherries
1 cup medjool dates, pitted
1/3 cup raw almond butter
1/4 cup cacao powder
1/4 cup cacao nibs
1/4 cup ground flaxseed
Put all the ingredients in the food processor. Blend until everything is completely combined. Put the contents on a sheet of wax paper. Roll into small bites.
I refrigerated mine. They’ll keep about a month in the fridge. In the freezer they’ll last much longer.
Well you best go and make a batch. Check back and tell me what you think!
