    Almond Chocolate Chia Bites inspired by Chia Brownie Bites [yields ~18-20 bites]

    • 1c chia flour
    • 10 medjool dates
    • 2.5T unrefined coconut oil, softened
    • 6T unsweetened cocoa powder
    • 1T chia seeds [optional]
    • 2T unsweetened coconut [optional]
    • 1/2t vanilla extract
    • 1/4t + 1/8t almond extract
    • 1/4t salt
    1. Process the pitted dates in your large food processor until a ball forms and the pieces are well ground.
    2. Add in your pre-ground chia flour, coconut oil, cocoa powder, almond extract, vanilla extract, and salt, and process until well combined.  About 20-30 seconds.
    3. The mixture will look crumbly, but should easily form into a ball when you press it together with your hands.
    4. If using, mix in extra chia seeds + coconut by hand.
    5. Form dough into balls or bars and store in a sealed container in the fridge.

    Notes: If you don’t want there to be a crunchy texture, leave out the extra chia seeds + coconut.  If you don’t have or don’t like almond extract or need this 100% nut free, add 1/2-1t cinnamon instead.  Medjool dates work best as does coconut oil.  The cheapest place I have found to order chia seeds is on Amazon.
