Coconut Date Bites

Coconut Date Bites

Instead of reaching for typical candy and cookies filled with refined sugars, preservatives and saturated fats, have a coconut date bite! They can be made in 10 minutes, require no cooking or baking, and your family and friends will love them because they taste just like cookie dough! This is a great, fun recipe to make with kids too!

When you consume raw unprocessed foods that are not cooked above 104° F, your body metabolizes them much more efficiently, allowing your body to focus energy on other parts of your system, other than digestion. These gluten-free, raw, vegan bite-sized treats provide healthy fats, natural sugars, and macro-nutrients that will satisfy your sweet tooth, give you a little burst of energy, and keep you away from the candy dishes!

Recipe Notes

A word about cacao nibs. Be careful when purchasing. As always, READ THOSE INGREDIENT LISTS!! For example, at HEB there are two brands that look the same at first glance. However, if you notice, there is one little word inserted in the name..."sweet"...  If you read the ingredient list of the "sweet" version, they have added "certified organic cane juice" so it is NOT your best choice. The other one is totally unsweetened. So, although they BOTH say "natural" and "organic," if you don't look carefully, you could make a wrong choice!
