Acai superfood bites

I think yesterday was my second using Acai. I thought it would go great on any type of energy truffle so last night I came up with these Acai superfood bites. They were pretty good so I am glad I came up with another recipe that uses this ingredient.

On another note, my school adventure pretty much starts today. I am moving all the way up North to Poughkeepsie and to say that I am super excited is an understatement. It has been a long road to be able to accomplish just getting accepted into the program so I am really happy about that.

This chapter in my life is going to be full of challenges and sacrifices since I am leaving the kids behind for 2 years, however, I think the rewards are going to be huge in the near future.

Lucky for my the school is only 2 hours away from were my family lives so I will be able to visit them almost every weekend. Shew…

All day yesterday I was prepping my meals for the week. I don’t intend to gain weight or become unhealthy while in school so sticking to a tight schedule as far as meal planning an exercise routine is concerned is what I intend to do.

I believe it really doesn’t take much to have a meal plan in place. Just a bit of invested time at first to gather ingredients and recipes for the week ahead is pretty much it. Then devoting just an afternoon cooking for the week and you are done.

I think this method is better because it saves time doing food shopping and cooking through the week. All in all in a much better way and it saves time in the long run.

I was able to make chocolate almond butter overnight oats, caribbean rice and beans, gazpacho, pasta and the Acai superfood bites which will be my snack of the week. If this doesn’t last me I will prepare something simple like a wholesome salad a couple of times if any and I should be good to go.

Anyways, if you have noticed, these Acai superfood bites have no dates so for those that despise them this recipe is for you.

Enjoy!

  1. Oh my gosh. You’re speaking my fall love language! <3

  2. They are so rich, decadent yet so good for you too!

  3. Wow!! These look so decadent! I love all things pumpkin so this is right up my alley! 

  4. The date paste looks magical! Bet it’s good for so many things. These look so yummy, can’t even tell how healthy they are ;)

  5. Oh my! I just love truffles and these look amazing!!

  6. These are so beautiful! I love that they’re “healthier” truffles – I need to make a batch!

  7. Can I use coconut flour in place of almond flour?

  8. I love that you combined dates and pumpkin (and all the other healthy ingredients)to make these lovely truffles. My kids are going to be so excited if we make them this week!! 

    • I am sure you could. I have seen coconut flour used for raw desserts before so if you don’t mind the taste I am sure you could also use it. The only thing is that you would probably need a lot less of it. I would say probably no more than 1/2 cup of it if not less. Good luck experimenting :-)

  9. I never thought of combining pumpkin and dates!  Really creative.  Also your photos are beautiful!

  10. These truffles look amazing! Bonus, I have everything I need to make them!

  11. I love truffles, I’ve never thought to make pumpkin!  sounds great! 

  12. So gorgeous! Great combo of flavors. Being able to use dates in dessert recipes like this is just amazing to me! I love this recipe!

  13. Is there any replacement for the almond milk and almond flour. They ridiculously expensive here. 

  14. These sure look great and I love how easy they are to make. Love pumpkin and making pumpkin treats in the fall! :)

  15. What a lovely recipe! They look amazing, and make us so hungry for pumpkins now.

  16. I’m worried because you do not show cooking them like a cookie! Should I make them smaller- seems weird or doughy!

  17. What do you do if you are allergic to dates like I am/  tried dried figs (which I love)  not a pleasant outcome.  Help!

    • I have never used dried figs before. Was the batter to wet? If so maybe you can fix it by adding some oat flour you can make by adding some rolled oats to your food processor until it becomes powder like. I know you can also use prunes in place of dates, which I like to use in place of dates from time to time. I hope this helps a little!

  18. You will not regret making these! They are so amazing and you would never know how good they are for you by how rich and sweet they are! I was hesitant at first thinking they may taste too “figgy,” however, all you can taste is delicious dark chocolate and pumpkin! 

    Thanks for the recipe!

  19. These look absolutely wonderful! Perfect to go along with our (way too many) Christmas desserts. Do you think white whole wheat flour would work in place of almond flour?
