Cranberry Bites

Protein in a few bites, sweetness that stops my cravings but doesn’t get me to the place where I can’t stop eating.

Full of protein sweet tart goodness… I think this might be my new favorite!

Cranberry Bites

8 dates, pitted

1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce

1/3 cup dried cranberries

1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut

1 T Chia seeds

Put all ingredients in food processor and process until it is a moist paste with cranberry chunks.

I formed each bite by filling a tablespoon with the dough and inverting it unto a plate.

16 protein goodness bites. To eat right then and there or refrigerate.

  1. that sounds really good!

  2. They sound yummy. Can I find chia seeds in a grocery store, or do I have to go to a health food store?

  3. Oh, thank you! I’ll look forward to trying one.

  9. I love cranberries! It is so nice to see a cranberry recipe that doesn’t also include turkey and stuffing. Very creative and with the chia seeds they will be very filling.
