Cocoa-Nut Prune Bites

Servings: Makes about 24 bites

Ingredients

  • 1 cup toasted unsweetened shredded coconut, divided
  • ½ cup sliced almonds, toasted
  • 1 cup California Prunes
  • ½ cup raw almonds
  • 3 TBSP cocoa powder
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 TBSP chia seeds
  • 3 TBSP almond butter
  • 1 TBSP coconut oil
  • 2 TBSP honey
  • ¼ cup diary-free mini chocolate chips

Directions

Combine ½ cup toasted coconut and toasted sliced almonds in a shallow dish and set aside.

In a food processor, combine California Prunes, raw almonds and remaining ½ cup coconut. Process until the mixture is finely ground and a uniform texture.

Next, add remaining ingredients, except chocolate chips, and process until the mixture comes together into a thick paste (should resemble thick cookie dough). Add mini chocolate chips and mix by hand to incorporate, do not use food processor blade for this step.

Using a one tablespoon measure or scoop, form into 24 balls and roll each in toasted coconut/sliced almond mixture to coat.

Store in refrigerator until ready to enjoy.
