Recipe from The Plant Pure Nation Cookbook by Kim Campbell
These are no-bake cookies that I refer to as “bites” because I make them small. They are naturally sweet from the dates and loaded with chocolate and walnuts. They taste like you’re eating a candy bar without all the butter, sugar, and artificial flavors.
• 1 cup walnuts
• 1 cup pitted Medjool dates
• ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
• 1 teaspoon vanilla or coconut extract
• ¼ cup unsweetened coconut flakes, for garnish
Line a 9 × 9 inch pan with parchment paper.
Place the ingredients except coconut flakes into a food processor and blend until a thick dough forms. You may need to add a small amount of water here if the consistency is too dry.
Press the chocolate mixture into the prepared pan.
Refrigerate for 1 hour.
Cut into 24 bites and serve. Garnish the tops of the bites with coconut flakes.
