I make this bites with a recipe courtesy from my sister. The recipe is very simple, you just need 1 cup of each: dates, coconut shreds, cashews and then I added a protein powder, cinnamon and maple syrup for a better flavor. The flavor is so balanced plus the cashews pair perfectly with the coconut shreds. If you are a coconut lover like me, I am convinced that these will turn your favorite bites. What I like the most of this recipe was the texture, because when you are shaping them into balls. the mixture is not too sticky for your hands neither too loose to shape.
