3-Ingredient Chocolate, Date and Walnut Bites

Dates, walnuts (or almonds, I made two versions for this post), and 100% cocoa powder. That’s it! Put all three ingredients in a food processor and whirl until mixture comes together. Roll into bite size pieces and enjoy! Make extra because these freeze well for a grab and go breakfast or snack. Plus, these sweet, yummy bites have no added sugar!

Chocolate, Date and Walnut Bites

Ingredients

1 cup walnuts

1 cup dates (use Medjool dates and be sure pits are removed)

1 tablespoon 100% cocoa powder

Directions

Place all ingredients in a food processor.  Blend until smooth. Using a heaping teaspoon, roll into bite size pieces. Store in a sealed container in the refrigerator. Makes 16 bites. Serving size is 2.

Nutrition Note: With sweetness coming naturally from the dates, there’s no need to add sugar. Walnuts add protein and healthy plant-based omega-3 fatty acids and cocoa powder gives these little energy bites a delicious boost of heart protective antioxidants.
