strawberry hazelnut bites by kalejunkie



3/4 cup hazelnuts (raw and unsalted)
1/2 cup almond butter
1/2 cup (about 6) medjool dates, pitted
4 tablespoons cacao powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 cup powdered freeze dried strawberries (one bag)

I made these STRAWBERRY HAZELNUT BITES yesterday, so if you like nutella and chocolate, then these are for you. I took them to the gym I train at this morning (because SOMETIMES I share ) and they were gone within minutes, so that tells you something!



In a food processor, pulse the freeze dried strawberries until a powder forms; dump into a bowl and set aside. In the same food processor, add the hazelnuts, almond butter, dates, cacao powder, vanilla extract, and about half of the powdered strawberry mixture.
Pulse on and off for a few minutes until a crumbly mixture is formed and you can form balls.
Form balls with your hands and place them on a plate. You should be able to get 12.
Sprinkle remaining strawberry powder on top and eat!
Store them in the fridge and enjoy as needed.
If you make them, tag me, I want to see!
