These little unassuming bites might be my absolute favorite recipe I’ve ever posted. And that’s saying a lot considering there are 240+ recipes on the pages of Back to Her Roots. There are so many things I love about these little bites. I love that they are only three ingredients—dates, peanuts and salt. I love that they are sweet and salty. I love that they are packable and transportable. I love that they come together in about 6.3 minutes. I love that they are packed with healthy fats, protein and fiber. Oh, and I love that they are stupidly delicious.
Like, they are so delicious that I couldn’t stop dipping my hand into the
cookie date bite jar. To me, these suckers taste exactly like a peanut butter cookie. Except without any added sugar or the hassle of baking. There are the perfect snack for a little late-afternoon pick-me-up. They also have just the right amount of carbs, fat, protein and calories to be a good pre-workout snack.
It’s still fascinates me that some of the simplest recipes are the most amazing. It’s amazing what simple, high-quality ingredients can do when pulled together. Yum!
