Coconut date bites

I just finished making these coconut date bites last night in preparation for Easter dinner. I was so surprise as to how awesome they tasted and how easy they were to make that I will be making more of these bites for the upcoming week.

I am actually serving these coconut date bites as well as my gluten free flourless chocolate cake for dessert today. I will be making two of them since there will be 9 of us and I anticipate people wanting seconds.

These also go perfect for the Moroccan food theme we are going for today. I really can’t wait.

I love making bites of this kind because not only you can make endless variations but because they are super easy to make, are gluten free, vegan and most importantly they are super healthy.

Coming May, I will be starting school again, so I really want to make bites like this every week so that I can pack them with me and have on the go. I know I will be getting hungry through out the day so I want to make sure I have it covered and not munch on anything I shouldn’t.

Nuts and things of this nature is what I like to snack on the most!

So how are you spending your Easter? I wish I had a chance of going to Spain and see family and friends, unfortunately plane tickets for a family of four to spend just a few days in Spain is not worth it. As a result, we will be spending it with some friends, which is equally important.

It is actually very hard these days to find quality friends. I don’t have that many for that matter. I have a couple of good friends from high school, however, they are in Spain and one good friend here with me in the USA.

I am one of those people that liked to have few good friends rather that tons of them that don’t have your back. It is a waste of time really!

Anyways, all in all, I hope that you have a wonderful Eater Sunday today. If you have 15 minutes and would like something sweet, healthy and tasty these coconut date bites are the perfect solution. A tasty dessert that your friends and family will enjoy!

Enjoy!

  1. The filling is just like ice cream :-) Love those freeze-dried raspberries!
    These bars look right up my alley.

  2. I must say this recipe is very exciting! I never thought of pulverizing my freeze-dried raspberries. Now, the possibilites are endless. :)

  3. These look so much like spring, I can hardly take it!! The raspberry flavor must be so bright and happy!

  4. Any suggestions for those of us so do not like coconut flavor but love raspberries? What could I sub for the canned coconut cream?

  5. Can you use frozen raspberries? I am having trouble finding freeze dried raspberries and the powder is super expensive. Do you freeze dry your own?

    • I buy them already dried. I have bought them at trader joes and whole foods. Use fresh if you can find the dry freeze ones. However, the mixture may be a bit harder when you freeze the bars due to the water content but I think they will still be good :-) Thanks for stopping by.

  6. Do you soak your cashews before hand

  7. Can you replace the dates with anything else?

    • I think any dried fruit of your choice would work. I have used prunes before and it was fine. If you see that the mixture is a bit dry just add one tablespoon of a liquid like almond milk or something and I think you should be fine :-)

  8. Do you have any raw, vegan recipes that’s don’t include nuts. Our school has a nut free policy.

  9. Is there anything i can use in substitution for the cashews? I love all your recipes, but can’t make most of them due to nut allergy.

  10. I’m assuming coconut cream is different than canned coconut milk. Could I use the milk somehow? If I use the heavy cream, do you still use 14 oz? This looks great and like something my daughter would let my grandchildren eat.

    • Yes the coconut milk is a bit more liquid like. You can still use the coconut milk but make sure if full fat otherwise it will be very water based and it will not turn out good. You can also use the 14 oz heavy cream if you like too. Thanks for stopping by!

  11. How long do these take to freeze?
    Have you tried them with other low calorie sweeteners such as Stevia or erythritol?

  12. My son has devoured the avocado and banana version of these in 2 days!! However, he won’t wait til they thaw. Is this bad for him and would he benefit from any of the nutrional value in frozen form? Thank you.

  13. Thank you! This is the only way he’ll eat avocado -delish. Love your site. :)

  14. I made these this morning for dessert tonight. I just took a “test bite” and, Oh. My. Goodness. They are beyond great! I did have 2 small issues when making them. 1) I read the ingredients well over 10 just to make sure I had the correct stuff. While pouring my filling on the crust I realized I used coconut MILK, not cream. So I had to freeze it a while before I poured the top layer. 2) I had to double the amount of the top layer to cover it. This is one of those kinda treats that it’s really going to be hard to limit our portion! Thank you so much:)

  15. For how long can I keep them in the freezer? Can I make them two dags ahead?

  16. I can only find 5 ounce cans of coconut cream. Any idea where I can order the larger size?
