Raw Santa Hat Cake Bites

Okay, so I guess there’s nothing revolutionary new about this recipe, but ever since I saw these ‘Santa Hat Brownie Bites‘ at “SweetTooth”, I wanted to create a healthier version of them. Then when I spotted some fresh strawberries at the supermarket I knew I had  to recreate these fun christmas bites! They didn’t quite turn out how I imagined but they taste great nonetheless so I guess it doesn’t matter much, right? 😉

Raw Brownies:

80g dates

30g almonds (or other type of nuts)

10g unsweetened cocoa powder

3/4 tsp vanilla extract

a dash of salt

Blend everything together in a food processor or high-powered blender; nothing fancy there. Scopped everything out on a piece of plastic wrapping and roll into one long stick. Refrigerate for a few minutes allowing the “dough” to firm up.

Raw Angelcake:

60g dates

20g dried apricots

30g almonds

10g unsweetened shredded coconut

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

a dash of salt

Same procedure as with the raw brownie bites.

When the dough has firmed slightly cut the sticks into about 4 smaller pieces – mine were 28g each. Rinse strawberries and cut of the botttom before placing your “santa hats” on the stems.

Makes 8 “santa hats”, 98 kcal for the brownie bites and 105 kcal for the angelcake bites.
