Vegan Raw Bites- only five ingredients!

Healthy nibbles made with only 5 ingredients each. You have permission to crazy with these :)

Carob Cherry Almond
1 cup raw almonds, finely ground
2 TBSP carob powder
1 cup sweet dates
1/2 cup raisins
1 cup dried cherries

1. Puree dates, raisins and cherries together.
2. Add almonds and carob powder and mix with until all ingredients are finely incorporated together.
3. Push into molds and (optional) set in fridge. I used an ice tray mold and a baking mold but chocolate molds work great too.

Peanut Butter Honey (Agave)
1 cup sweet dates
1.5 cups raw peanuts
2 TBSP raw cocoa
1 TBSP honey (use agave for vegan bites)
dash of salt

1. Puree dates.
2. Add peanuts, cocoa, honey and salt and mix till finely incorporated together.
3. Push into molds and (optional) set in the fridge

Depending on what type of dates you use and how ripe they are you might need to add a bit more dates or a bit more nuts in order to get the right consistency so that a shape is easily formed and held by the mixture. You will be able to tell if you have the right combination if the dough should is sticky, but not sticky enough where it isn't able to easily fall off your fingers. These goodies are ready to be eaten right away but you can put them in the fridge too.
