FROZEN NO BAKE BITES to the rescue!  These little gems save me on car rides, at endless sports tournaments, packed into lunches for a treat or a quick after-school snack.  (Sometimes they help me out when I’m needing something sweet but don’t want to steal my kids’ candy—because that’s wrong, Right?).  


  • 1 cup cacao nibs
  • 1 cup raw almond butter (can split 1/2 nut butter, 1/2 nuts) 
  • 10 medjool dates, pitted
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne (optional) 
  • a pinch of sea salt

Place all the ingredients in a food processor.  Pulse to combine well.  

Then, gather:

  • 1 -2 T coconut oil (warm it, so liquid)
  • Shredded, unsweetened coconut

Drizzle coconut oil into the processor, a little at a time, and pulse until combined. If mixture is too sticky to form into balls, allow it to rest in the freezer 10-15 mins.  

Roll into 1 inch balls.  Put unsweetened, shredded coconut on plate and roll to coat.   Refrigerate.  

Can be frozen in airtight container.
