Author: Healthy Gluten-Free Family
Recipe type: Holiday, Snack, Breakfast, Dessert
Cuisine: Gluten-Free, Vegan, No Bake
Serves: 12-14 bliss bites
Gingerbread Bliss Bites
1 cup pitted dates
1 cup pecans
1 tablespoon molasses
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground ginger
¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
¼ teaspoon cloves
¼ teaspoon kosher salt
3 tablespoons almond butter
Shredded Coconut for rolling
Place dates in a food processor and pulse several times or about 30 seconds until roughly chopped or broken down into small bits.
Add the toasted pecans and pulse several times to chop pecans into smaller pieces and mix with the dates. (do not over mix)
Add molasses, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, cloves and salt and pulse a few times to mix.
Add almond butter and pulse several times to combine. Note: when all the ingredients are mixed together, the pecans will still be in small bits, not a paste -- do not over process or oils will start to break down and mixture will become too "wet"
Roll into 1-inch balls and roll in shredded coconut.
Keep stored in a sealed container in the refrigerator or freezer.
