Magic 5 Snacks

With all of the processed snacks on the market, people don’t often take the time to create snacks from scratch. I made this recipe to show people just how easy it is to make a snack that is healthy, delicious, and one that the kids all love. Made with 5 ingredients in 5 minutes, my Magic Five Snack Bites are the perfect snack to cure any snack craving-the healthy way.

Servings: 16 bites

Time: 5 minutes

1 cup raw organic almonds
1 cup fresh dates (about 10 dates), pitted (depending on how fresh your dates are, you may need to add more to create more “stickiness”)
2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tbsp unsweetened shredded coconut
Dash of sea salt


  • Place all ingredients into a high speed blender, or food processor, and process until mixture is loose, small crumbles-about 1 minute.
  • Use a tablespoon to take a spoon full from blender -pack it in between your hands, by forming a fist-then, roll into a ball. (Please note: if you notice that your crumbles are not packing together, just add another date, or a few dates to make the mixture more sticky.)
  • Repeat until all of the mixture is used.
  • Stores well in an airtight container for up to 5 days (if they last that long!)
