Peanut Butter Date Bites

Peanut Butter Date Bites


I've been sharing lots of snacks and treats with you lately, because I've been trying to get rid of the crap in my diet and substitute in wholesome, good stuff.  I've been cutting out refined sugar and flour, so I've been looking for ways to satisfy my sweet tooth without compromising on the "healthy" factor. These peanut butter bites are awesome.  They are sweet, satisfying, and filling!

Peanut Butter Date Bites

From Sprouted Kitchen

1 cup raw almonds
1 cup pitted dates
1/2 cup natural peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
pinch of sea salt

In a food processor, pulse the almonds until a coarse meal forms. Add the vanilla, cinnamon, dates, peanut butter, and salt if using. Pulse everything together until they are generally uniform in color and texture. The mixture should stick together when pressed between your fingers. If it seems dry, add another Tbsp. of peanut butter.

Roll dough into scant tablespoon size balls. Press them down with a fork to make a cross hatch. Repeat with remaining dough. Cover and keep chilled in the fridge.
