Fruity Nutty Snack Bites

Stymied when trying to find a quick, easy, plentiful, healthy grab-and-go snack? Be stymied no more! This non-recipe recipe is modified from a Bon Appetit magazine tutorial I’d clipped years ago and finally managed to make.

Fruity Nutty Snack Bites

Ingredients

  • about a pound of pitted dates or prunes
  • a tablespoon or so of water
  • a bunch of dried cranberries and/or dried apricots and/or golden raisins
  • a few handfuls of almonds or walnuts
  • about a quarter cup of coconut flakes
  • a tablespoon or so of unsweetened cocoa powder and a handful of chocolate chips (optional)

Instructions

  1. Working your way down the ingredients list, whip up ingredients one at a time in the food processor until they form a ball. It'll be a bit sticky.
  2. Place parchment or waxed paper in an 8x8 pan and press the mixture into the pan. Wet your hands to help it spread more smoothly and stay in the pan - not on your fingers. Top with more shredded coconut or maybe some minced nuts. I let mine set in the fridge for an hour or so and found it was easier to cut into bars with that method.
  3. Cut into about 30+ bite-sized snacks. Store the sliced bites in a container on the counter or in the refrigerator.
