Redd Salted Caramel Cashew Almond Bee Bites
Recipe Creator: @onehungrybee
- 1/2 Salted Caramel Redd bar (save the other half for garnishing)
- 1 cup raw, unsalted cashews
- 3/4 cup raw, unsalted almonds
- 1 cup dates, pitted (around 10)
- 1 tsp hemp seed
- 2 tsp chia seed
- 1/4 nut butter
- 1/4 cup cacao powder (to taste)
- 1-2 tsp melted coconut oil
- 1 tbsp cacao nibs
Blend ingredients together for 3 minutes in a food processor, or until the ingredients come together in the bowl. Roll into balls. If you’re feeling decadent, you can also coat some in cacao powder!
- 1 cup cashews (soaked preferably overnight)
- 1 date
- 1 tsp strained raspberry or beet juice for color
After the cashews have soaked, drain the soaking water and put them in a food processor with around ¾ cup water – enough so they are just covered. Add the date and coloring and blend. If you’d like thicker cream, replace some of the water with nut milk.
Use a piping bag to pipe the cashew cream onto the bites. For a sweet final touch, use a small cookie cutter to cut the Redd bar into hearts to garnish your truffles!
