It seems like I am always making little bite-sized desserts. I just love having something small that can satisfy my sweet tooth without wasting hundreds of calories! After making chocolate and coconut and peanut butter and honey bites, I decided to switch gears and do a fruit-based bite. This one still contains dates as a main ingredient, making them nice and gooey, but it also has dried apple chunks…yum! I decided to use Blue Diamond Honey Cinnamon almonds as the nut ingredient, since I knew they would add a great cinnamon “pie” flavor to the bites. These are my favorite almonds…they literally taste like cinnamon sugar fried dough. No lie…they are so good! So go get yourself two cans – a can to make these bites and a can to eat on their own. You’ll thank me, I promise 🙂
Cinnamon Apple Pie Bites
Adapted from: The Healthy Maven
- 1 cup pitted dates
- 1 cup dried apple pieces
- 1 cup quick rolled oats
- 1 can (6 oz) Blue Diamond Honey Cinnamon Almonds
1.) Mix everything together in a food processor. Process until everything is ground up into the consistency of gravel. Add a thin stream of water and pulse again until the mixture gets sticky when you push down on it.
2.) Roll into small balls with your hands. You may have to keep wetting your hands so the dough doesn’t stick to them! Refrigerate bites for about an hour to harden them. Store in a container in the fridge and enjoy!
