5-MINUTE HEALTHY CHOCO-ALMOND BITES

Jan 03 2015
Cooking was never my thing, until I got married half a year ago. But becoming a wife and reading food blogs [in that order] has inspired me to dish out some good food with my own hands. Trust me, it is so fulfilling when you cook something on your own. 
A couple months ago, my chocolate cravings hit an all time high and after gulping down five ferrero rochers in a couple of hours, I realized I had to find a healthier alternative. I just got into the kitchen, and worked in some magic. Voila, look what I made! These Chocolate almond bites are deliciously healthy. They are vegan, gluten-free and take under 5 minutes to make. My main takeaway from this was that even simple, healthy ingredients can combine to make something so incredibly tasty! 
RECIPE : [makes 10]

INGREDIENTS:
  •  7 Medjool dates (Great alternative to sugar)
  • 10 Almonds (Vitamin E powerhouse)
  • 10 Walnuts / Hazelnuts / Pecans
  • 1 Tbsp. Flax seeds (Rich in anti-oxidants)
  • 1 Tbsp. Almond Butter 
  • 1 Tsp. Coconut oil/ butter 
  • 1 Tbsp. Raw cocoa powder (Rich in anti-oxidants)
  • 1 Tsp. Protein powder

INSTRUCTIONS:
  • Pitt the dates. 
  • Grind the almonds, walnuts and flax seeds together into a coarse mixture in a blender.
  • Add the dates, almond butter, cocoa powder, protein powder, coconut oil and blend again into a soft mixture.
  • Rub some coconut oil on to your palms and roll the mixture into small balls.   

You see the ingredients? Everything is very healthy and you will thank me when you taste it. Please let me know if you try them, it takes less than 5 minutes to make. Enjoy!

  • Oh those look so good! Unfortunately I really hate dates… or any dried fruit for that matter. I guess you don’t really notice the texture or flavour in all the mixture though.

    • Aww Carla, but you really can’t feel the taste of dates when you eat it. It is just a healthy replacement for sugar! πŸ™‚ xo

      • Yeah, I really thought so. Might give them a try after all! One has to go out of her comfort zone every now and then, haha.

  • Phoaarrr these look amazing!! Can’t believe they are vegan and gluten free, doesn’t seem possible! I’ve never tried dates but I keep hearing how they make a great sugar alternative so I’m going to have to stock up, trying to limit my sugar intake at the moment!!
