Date Free Golden Spiced Mango & Coconut Bliss Bites
1/2 cup raw almonds
1/2 cup raw cashews
3/4 cup dried mango* – Keto/ low carb lovin’ friends – soak/ferment your fruit in coconut water keifr or kombucha overnight and you should be ready to roll
4 Tablespoon of shredded coconut
1 Tablespoon of coconut butter – optional but recommended – sub 1 tsp of filtered water & 1/2 teaspoon of coconut extract
2 teaspoon of vanilla
1 teaspoon of Golden Glow Mix
1/2 teaspoon of Ginger Ninja
2 Tablespoons of Hemp seeds
1 pinch of salt
1 teaspoon of filtered water
Optional add ins;
1 teaspoon of maca powder – for hormone balance
1-2 scps hemp protein – for extra protein
Optional for serving –
Freeze dried mango, crushed to powder
Finely shredded coconut flakes
1 – Optional but highly (HIGHLY) recommended – Place your nuts on to a lined baking tray and roast at 175’C/350’F for 5-10 mins until lightly toasted, gloriously golden and deliciously fragrant.
2 – Once toasted, place your nuts into your food processor/blender and pulse until crumbly, you want there to still be a few bigger chunks to give the bites some nice texture.
3 – Add mango and process until the mixture starts to come together into a sticky, loose “dough”.
4 – Add vanilla, spices, coconut oil, hemp seeds, maca and protein powder (if using) then process again until combined.
5 – Using your hands, roll approx 1 small Tablespoons worth of dough into bite size balls then set aside – FYI – I like to make my bites on the smaller side. You would probably need 3 of mine to make up one of those golf ball size bites you buy at cafe’s or in stores.
6 – If you are going to coat your bliss bites in simply place your mango powder & coconut into a small bowl or zip lock bag and gentle press/shake until nicely coated. Store in the fridge until ready to serve.
If you find your mango is super dry you could try soaking it in some warm water for 10 mins before you begin, then drain and rinse and make as normal.
