Description

These Superfood Snack Bites are packed with healthy ingredients and are naturally gluten-free, vegan and refined sugar-free. They make the perfect energizing snack for any time of day!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 3/4 cup Medjool dates (pits removed) 
  • 1/4 cup no sugar added dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup goji berries
  • 1/4 cup uncooked quinoa 
  • 1/2 cup roasted almonds 
  • 1/2 cup pistachios 
  • 2 tbsp hemp seeds
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 oz 70% dark chocolate

Instructions

  1. Add the dates, cranberries, goji berries, quinoa, almonds, pistachios, hemp seeds, chia seeds and vanilla extract to a food processor. Pulse until the mixture is a sticky dough. 
  2. Transfer the dough into an 8×4 inch loaf pan lined with parchment paper and press it down into the pan. 
  3. Melt the dark chocolate and pour on top of the pan, spreading evenly. Optionally sprinkle some more nuts and seeds on top of the bites to decorate. 
  4. Place in the fridge for a minimum of 2 hours for the bites to set. 
  5. Cut into even squares and enjoy. 

Notes

How to store: in the fridge in a sealed container for up to 2 weeks, or in the freezer for up to 3 months. These can be enjoyed straight out of the fridge or freezer. 

What to do if your dates are dry: soak them in hot water for 5 minutes, then drain and proceed with the recipe. 

What to do if your dough is crumbly: add more dates and dried fruit and pulse together again.
