Hungry for a Treat

The other day, I was just plain greedy for something sweet and gooey, but I so don’t like using flour or sugar these days… so this is what I came up with, tweaking an old recipe:

ALMOND BITES

15 dates, roughly chopped

1 cup of almonds, roughly chopped

A bit of vanilla

A nice dash of cinnamon

Unsweetened cocoa powder

I put the chopped dates, almonds, vanilla and cinnamon in my little food processor and pushed the button; it made a nice, thick paste.  I put the unsweetened cocoa on a plate, made little balls of dough and rolled them into the cocoa.  That’s it!

Five minutes, tops.

Delicious!
