Breakfast or Snack Ideas: Maple Peanut Date Bites

Well, these little bites are growing on me. With few ingredients, they sure satisfy a sweet tooth and go perfect with cup of coffee. They kind of remind me of a cinnamon roll combined with a maple nutty donut… Maybe 🤷🏻‍♀️😂. But one thing for sure, they are delicious!

Here’s the recipe:

Ingredients

1 cup nuts

1 cup dates

2 tbsp. PB2 powder

1 tsp. vanilla flavoring

1 tsp. maple flavoring

1 tsp. cinnamon

2 tbsp. water

Preparation

Place all ingredients in a food processor and pulse until smooth. Using a cookie dough scoop, scoop mixture into mini bites. Makes about 18 bites. Store in fridge or freezer.

*Note: May chop dates first with PB2, then nuts. This is a little gentler on the food processor.

Why dates?

Dates are a nutrient-dense food. The nutrion profile surprised me with never-ending list of vitamins and minerals. Pretty cool! I’ve highlighted just a few…

I also have a decadent Cholate-Lovers Date Bite recipe coming soon!

Enjoy!
