Raw Chocolate Almond “Brownie” Bites
Makes approximately 1-1/2 to 2 dozen balls
- 1 cup raw almonds, whole or pieces
- 1 cup Medjool dates, pits removed
- 1/2 cup cocoa powder
- Pinch sea salt
- 1 tablespoon unsweetened coconut flakes or coconut sugar for dusting (optional)
Place the almonds in a food processor and process until the nuts form a coarse flour. With the machine running add the pitted dates, cocoa powder and salt. Continue processing until a moist, crumb-like dough has formed.
Roll into 1-1/2 inch balls and dust with coconut flakes or coconut sugar if desired. Refrigerate (if you can!) until ready to eat.
