Energy Bites


Place 1 kg  of dates in a container with enough hot tea (any flavour) to cover them. Soak for several hours until very soft. Remove the dates from the tea, remove the seeds from the dates, and place the dates in a food processor or blender. Blend until smooth.

Place blended dates in a large bowl. Add 2 cups of dessicated coconut and 1/2 cup of cocoa or cacao powder. This is the basis of your energy bites.

Now add 2 cups of whatever seeds, chopped nuts or dried fruit you have on hand. Mix well. If the mixture is too soft add more coconut. If the mix is too dry add a little liquid sweetener such as maple syrup, agave syrup or brown/malt rice syrup.

Roll mixture no larger than golf ball size. Roll balls of mix in coconut, cocoa, or chopped nuts.

Refrigerate for an hour and enjoy. These can be frozen.
