  2. 1 cup of Amäzi coco plantain chips

  3. 1/2 cup of pitted dates

  4. 2 tbsp of nut/ seed butter of choice (I used tahini)

  5. Pinch of sea salt

  6. 1/2 cup of unsweetened finely shredded coconut for rolling (optional)

  7. 2 tsp Maca powder (optional)

Directions:

  1. In your food processor, add the cashews (drained and rinsed), Amäzi chips, salt, Maca, and dates. Process till all ingredients are reduced and combined.

  2. Add tahini. Process until dough starts sticking together and is tacky.

  3. On a lined baking sheet, make your bites using a 1 tbsp cookie scoop or spoon.

  4. Place in fridge for 10 minutes

  5. If desired, roll your bites in a coat of coconut shreds! I also added some crushed freeze-dried raspberries for color! Store in the fridge in an airtight container for up to a week. Enjoy!
