Healthy almond butter brownie bites

Last week,I remembered that I have dates in my pantry and I had to make something with them! With their natural sweetness and their soft sticky texture is very hard not to love them! In Greece we stuff them with soft cheese and drizzle some honey and chopped walnuts on top! Yummy!

I was looking for something tasty,a low caloric,brownie like recipe and I found this one,with some additions,of course!

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup raw almonds
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 12 dates
  • 3 tablespoons raw almond butter
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

Place the almonds in a food processor and process till you get an almond meal. Set aside.

Process the pitted dates,until they become like a paste.

Add the rest of the ingredients and process until you will get a paste.

Wet your hands and put the paste in a small squared bowl or pan. Let it sit in the fridge for an hour and then scored it.

The almond extract surely,brings the bites to another level,it enhances  the almonds and it pairs perfectly with the dates and cocoa!
