Ingredients

For Outside Coating

  • 1/4 cup raw hazelnuts
  • 1/4 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/4 teaspoon Himilayan Pink Sea Salt (or whatever sea salt you prefer)

For Individual Bites

  • 1 cup roasted chestnuts
  • 1/2 cup dates
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh squeeze lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon Himilayan Pink Sea Salt (or whatever sea salt you prefer)
  • 2 tablespoons Karuna's Pro Fit Drink

Instructions

  • Grab all your ingredients for your coating; hazelnuts, shredded coconut, and sea salt and add to food processor. Process until finely chopped and set aside. 
  • Next grab all your ingredients for your individual bites; roasted chestnuts, dates, cinnamon, lemon juice, sea salt, and Karuna's Pro Fit Drink to a food processor. Process until completely smooth. If mixture is too dry add a little more of Karuna's Pro Fit Drink.
  • Once done processing, scoop mixture with your hands and start forming mini balls. Take each ball and roll around in your coating mixture and place on a parchment paper lined pan. Do this for each one and refrigerate for 30 minutes to firm up
  • Serve as a quick snack! Will keep in refrigerator for 3 to 4 days and can freeze for a week. Enjoy!

Notes

  • If you currently do not have access to Karuna's Pro Fit Drink, use a flavored plant based milk like vanilla almond milk or coconut milk instead
  • You can add coco powder to this if you desire for a more chocolate taste. 
  • Use whatever nuts you desire for the coating; pecans, almonds, Brazil nuts, etc or a combination. There are no limits!
