Coconut Almond Date Bites

Category: Desserts - Other

Suitable for a: vegan diet



1 cup almonds

25 dates, pitted (I use medjool)

2 tablespoons flax seed, ground (whole flax seeds can be ground in a coffee grinder)

1/2 to 3/4 cup shredded coconut



In a food processor, grind the almonds to a fine meal. Transfer to a medium bowl. Grind the dates in the food processor until they form a ball. Add the dates to the bowl, along with the ground flax seeds.

Mix all ingredients by hand, until all ingredients are incorporated. Ive found that kneading the mixture like dough works best. Mixture will be sticky!

To make the bites, use a large cutting board and dust it with half the coconut. Place the date mixture on the board and, with a rolling pin, flatten the mixture into a rectangular shape about 3/4 thick. Coat the top layer with the remaining coconut. Use the rolling pin to press the coconut into the date mixture. Cut into bite size pieces and store in an air tight container.

Additional comments:


I usually double this recipe, as they go very quickly in my family. My double batch made 48 1x 1 1/2 bites.

I posted a pic of this recipe in the Photo Album.
