I had so much fun today making a quick version of the following recipe at Independence Golf Club! Even if the food was flying, we were tasting and laughing. I want to thank Will, LeAnne and everyone at IGC for helping me "put myself out there"! I promise to keep getting better at FB Live!
I adapted this recipe from one of my favorite healthy treat cookbooks, Natural Sweets and Healthy Treats". I will be giving away a FREE copy of this book for anyone that signs up for 2 or more classes this coming January! To learn more or sign up (if you in the Richmond,VA) see my scheduling page.
*Recipe adapted from “Natural Sweets and Healthy Treats” by Rita and Kimberly Bingham called "Triple Treat Sugarplums"
Healthy Triple Treat Bites
¼ cup dates

2 Tbsp apple or orange juice
1. Place ingredients in food processor for about 2 minutes or until mixture is smooth and sticks together.
2. Scoop about 1 Tbsp of mixture out into your hands and roll into a ball, makes about 16
Have fun with variations like adding different flavor extracts, nut butters or cocoa nibs.
Change the dried fruit and nuts as long as the ratio is equal amounts of nuts to fruit.
Roll the balls in cocoa powder, powdered sugar, festive sprinkles or finely chopped nuts
