Raw Chocolate & Coffee Bites

Recently I have been watching the food I have been snacking on.  I still have a few more kilo’s to lose to reach my goal so I am making sure I have something reasonably healthy in my fridge to satisfy my 4pm sweet craving. I am so excited to share with you this Raw Chocolate & […]

    Made the choc coffee bites this afternoon…great healthy snack Katrina.
    Am thinking the mixture could also work great made into balls (might have to chill mixture in fridge first) and rolled in coconut.
    Thanks for sharing :-)ReplyCancel

    If I left out the coffe, would I need to make my other changes to the recipe, do you think?ReplyCancel

    would you replace the walnuts with more almonds to make it nut free?ReplyCancel

    What a great idea, Kelly!ReplyCancel

      So i made it but its a crumbly mess, i can still save it. Just wondering. i left the coffee out as i’m making it for the kids, 1tbs of instant coffee was that liquid or powder?ReplyCancel

      • Katrina

        Oh no Kelly, I used coffee powder and really pressed it well into the container and left it in the fridge, sometimes I have left it all day before I slice it, perhaps you may need to leave it longer??ReplyCancel

        • Kelly Holliday

          will do, i’ve packed it harder and i’ll leave it 24hrs.ReplyCancel

          • Katrina

            Let me know how it turns out :)

          • kelly

            i must have done something wrong because its still way crumbly, or perhaps the walnuts were needed? i only used almonds (added extra to make up for no walnuts). Maybe i needed more dates. I think i’ll try again another day. But now i have quite a tasty crumble, i think i’ll make some banana ice cream and use it as a topping. :) thanks

  • Kim Fairfull

    Could you leave the dates outReplyCancel

    • Katrina

      No Kim the dates are a really important element of the bites, helps to combine it all together.ReplyCancel

    I just made these, it’s still chilling but the crumbs were delicious! Got treats for the in-laws who are staying for the weekend sorted now thank you!ReplyCancel

  • House of Nicnax

    Oh yum! These look delicious! Raw food is something that really interests me. I’m not brave enough to try to make any thing too complicated, but these seem easy enough! And to be truthful – you had me at “coffee” ! I think i’ll make these this week! Thanks for the recipe!

Healthy Coconut Lemon Balls

Sometimes it’s hard to find something different to add to the kids lunch boxes, they have their usual sandwich, a piece of fruit, vegetables sticks and some baking, but there are days where they want something a little more and I am loving the ‘balls‘ that I have been making lately.  Not only are they […]
