Recipe: Raw Chocolate Coffee Bites

I spent Saturday baking snacks for my kids school lunches also decided to make some items for myself for the weeks sneaky little treats. My pantry and fridge are full to the brim with baked goods!

I made energy balls which required almond butter…(See Almond Butter blog entry), I also made raw chocolate coffee bites. I found this on The Organised Housewife’s website, but I changed it up a little to suit my tastes.

Great for a quick snack, to kerb those ‘I need chocolate’ or ‘Give me all the coffees’ moments!

Ingredients


3/4 cup cashews
1/2 cup almonds
1 1/4 cup pitted dates
1/2 cup cacoa
1 tablespoon instant coffee
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
pinch salt

Directions

  1. Lightly grease loaf pan
  2. Place nuts, cacoa and coffee into food processor, process until they are fine crumbs
  3. Place dates into food processor, process until completely chopped
  4. Add vanilla and salt: process until combined
  5. Place mixture into loaf pan and firmly press into pan
  6. Refrigerate for 30-60 minutes, then slice into bite size pieces
  7. Store in an airtight container in the fridge

I have changed the nuts and used regular pitted dates to suit my tastes, but you can find the original recipe here. You don’t need expensive instant coffee for this recipe, cheap coffee works just as well. If you don’t like the taste of Cacao, use cocoa instead for that more chocolatey taste. If you have time, you could also roll this mixture into balls.
