No Bake Cashew Coconut Bites

No Bake Cashew Coconut Bites

These no-bake cashew coconut bites will satisfy even the sweetest of sweet teeth! They work with low-carb meal plans and take just 30 minutes to prepare. Place the balls into mini cupcake papers to keep them from sticking together. If you can’t find dates, try prunes instead.

Prep time: 30 min. - Servings: 15 - Serving Size: 1 Cashew Coconut Bite

Ingredients

  • ½ c. salted cashews
  • 10 dates, pitted and coarsely chopped
  • ½ c. sweetened, shredded coconut, divided
  • 1½ T. coconut oil, divided
  • 1 T. water

Directions

  1. Heat skillet over low-medium heat. Add cashews and toast until brown, about 5 min., stirring or shaking pan constantly.
  2. In a food processor, pulse toasted cashews 5-10 times or until very finely chopped. Add dates, ¼ c. shredded coconut, 1 T. coconut oil and water. Process for 30-60 sec., or until mixture forms and no large chunks of cashews or dates remain. Add additional ½ T. of coconut oil (if needed) to maintain moist texture.
  3. Place remaining ¼ c. shredded coconut in a shallow bowl. Using your hands, roll cashew mixture into 15 individual balls. Roll each ball in remaining shredded coconut and place in mini cupcake paper.
  4. Refrigerate at least 15 min. before serving.
