Ingredients

2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

2 tablespoons boiling water

8  dates, pitted and chopped (4 ounces)

2 tablespoons almond butter

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup dried tart cherries, chopped

1/3 cup shredded unsweetened coconut, toasted

1/3 cup Driscoll's Blueberries

1/2 cup chopped roasted almonds

  • Serves 1
  • Vegetarian
  • Breakfast

Method

In a small bowl, combine cocoa and boiling water. Stir until well mixed and let stand 5 minutes.

In a food processor, combine dates, almond butter and salt, and process to a fine paste (about the same consistency of peanut butter), about 1 minute. Add cocoa mixture and process until well combined, about 30 seconds. Transfer puree to a medium bowl. Stir in cherries and coconut until well combined.

To form the bites, spray a small amount of non-stick cooking spray on the palms of your hands. Scoop 1 tablespoon cocoa and nut mixture and place it in the centre of your hand and pat down to flatten. 

Place 2 to 3 blueberries in the centre of mixture. Fold mixture over to enrobe the berries and gently roll between the palms of your hands. Roll in the toasted almonds and set on a baking sheet. Repeat with remaining mixture. 

Chill 1 hour before serving.
