How To Make Healthy No-Bake Coconut Date Bites
Place cashews in a food processor and process for about 10 seconds.
Add pitted dates, 1/4 cup of the shredded coconut, 1 Tbsp coconut oil, 1 Tbsp water, and 1 tsp vanilla extract. Process for about a minute until the mixture comes together and there are no big chunks of dates or cashews.
Using a cookie scoop, scoop out 1 Tbsp of the mixture and form a ball using your hands. Repeat with the remaining coconut date mixture.
Place remaining shredded coconut in a bowl. Roll the coconut date bites in the coconut. Place them in a container or in mini muffin liners and store them in the fridge.
