When it comes to food my preference goes to savory foods, but when a great sweet treat comes along you can better hide it or it’ll be gone with the wind. Ever since I’ve been trying to avoid processed sugars (there might have been a couple of mess ups, whoops) it’s about time to create some whole food sweets that are simply sweetened with natures finest, dried fruits. If you’ve been following me for a while you know I’ve got a thing for chocolate flavoured raw treats, exibit #1 & exibit #2 will prove this fact.
These are similar to the bounty bites, but a little bit extra special, less bounty, more chocolaty! They make a great snack, with zero guilt. They’re still high in fruit sugars but come on, they’re raw vegan, let’s live a little!
Not only are these little balls way too good to pass down, they’re also really easy to make. It does require a food processor though and I’m well aware not everyone owns one. Just ask a friend who owns one to make it with you, sounds like fun to me!
Chocolate Power Bites - Raw Vegan
- 1 cup pecan nuts
- 1/4 cup sunflower seeds
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 1/3 cup desiccated coconut
- 1 tbsp maca powder
- 1/2 cup raw cacao powder
- 1 1/4 cup dates pitted
- Add everything except for the dates to the food processor and pulse until the nuts are finely chopped. Now add the pitted dates and pulse until everything's combined. For them into balls (or squares) and store in your fridge. Enjoy!
