Cacao Bites

At Body Care Plus, our team of Personal Trainers and Nutrition experts believe in getting value for calories, to get maximum nutrition out of your meals!

These Raw Cacao bites are the perfect treat to keep you feeling full for longer and to stave off that mid afternoon energy slump.

What do I need…?

50g walnuts
50g hazelnuts (Or 100g of any nut combination you prefer)
100g desiccated coconut (softened in a few drops of water)
100g medjool dates
50g raw cacao
3 tbsp coconut oil
Pinch of sea salt

Method…?

Whizz nuts in a food processor for a minute and then add the rest of the ingredients with a tablespoon of water and blend until thoroughly mixed.
Press mixture into a cling film lined container and smooth over. Fold cling film over mixture and place in freezer for 20-30 minutes.
Remove and cut into your preferred sized pieces.
We like to vary things by adding a handful of raisins, dried cherries or dried cranberries. Sometimes we add fresh orange zest and juice. The choices are endless so experiment away and enjoy!
