Yuri Elkaim

These raw, plant-based bites are the perfect dessert for every kind of diet — raw, paleo, vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free. They’re also the perfect size for bringing to work, packing into kids’ lunches, or eating on the go.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 Cup creamy raw almond butter
  • 1/2 Cup hemp hearts
  • 1/2 Cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 8 dates, raw and pitted
  • 1 Teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 Cup cacao nibs or chopped dark chocolate
  • 1/4 Cup raw cacao powder

Directions

In a food processor or high-speed blender, pulse together almond butter, hemp hearts, coconut flakes, dates, and vanilla until a thick dough forms.

Fold in chocolate or cacao nibs.

Using a teaspoon, scoop the dough and roll into 2 bite-sized balls.

Dust with cacao powder.

Store in fridge and enjoy for up to 3 weeks.
