Try these delicious little bites next time your sweet tooth starts up. Dates, nuts and ghee are all sattvic (blissful) foods. Dates are also high in fiber, vitamin a, potassium, rich in calcium, magnesium and are considered an aphrodisiac in yoga cooking…Ooh La La!
Date Nut Bliss Bites
1/2 cup pitted chopped dates
1/2 cup raw unsalted nuts (try walnuts, almonds or cashews)
1 tablespoon melted ghee (clarified butter) or coconut oil
1/4 tsp cardamom
1/3 cup dried unsweetened shredded dried coconut
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (optional)
1. Chop dates in a food processor or blender, add nuts and ghee. Blend into a paste. It’s okay if the paste is a little chunky, they will still taste good.
2. Remove from food processor, roll into 1 inch balls and roll in coconut or cocoa powder
***Get creative! Hand mix 1/4 cup goji berries or dried cranberries into paste before rolling out or try toasting coconut before coating the bites. Skip the coating step by adding the coconut into the date/nut paste.***
With coconut covered love,
