Description

Toasted coconut and dates give these Samoa Snack Bites the memorable flavor of one of my favorite Girl Scout Cookies!


Ingredients

Scale

  cup toasted unsweetened coconut

2 cups dates, pitted

2 tablespoon almond butter

1 tablespoon chocolate chips

¼ teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the coating:

⅓ cup toasted unsweetened coconut


Instructions

To toast the coconut: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Spread all of the shredded unsweetened coconut in an even layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Bake for about 5 minutes, just until the coconut is a light brown.

To make the snack bites: Place the dates, toasted coconut, almond butter and chocolate chips, salt and vanilla in a food processor fitted with the sharp S blade. Process until the mixture forms a large ball. 

Roll the dough into about 12 snack bites. Then roll the balls in the remaining ⅓ cup of coconut. 

Enjoy!

Notes

I like to store these in the freezer and then thaw by allowing to sit on the counter for several minutes before eating. They last in the freezer for about 3 months.
