Choccy bites - Recipe

Ingredients

  • 7 dried pitted dates chopped into small pieces
  • 2 tbsp of mixed nuts (or one type of nut if you prefer)
  • 1 tbsp of raw cacao powder
  • 1 tsp of maca powder
  • 1 tsp of quality smooth peanut butter
  • 2/3rd of a pack of 100g quality dark chocolate at least 70% cocoa

Method
1) Mix all the ingredients (except the dark choc) in a bowl
2) Melt the dark chocolate in a glass dish over hot pan of water
3) Put the mix into the melted dark chocolate and stir
4) Put the spoonful bite size pieces onto a greaseproof paper on a flat dish
5) Chill in fridge so dark choc hardens

ENJOY!

Notes: Try to use quality at least 70% cocoa dark chocolate so there is less sugar. Look at the ingredients, if it lists sugar first, then its majority sugar, as ingredients are listed in order of largest quantity first. For peanut butter - I use Pip & Nut, as its pure peanuts, no added sugar and no palm oil. The dates are sweet enough so you don't need any sugar here.
