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. Is a serving size about a cup? Did you keep it in the big bowl or separate into individual servings?

    • Yes it is about a cup, I have actually just corrected the nutrition facts bc the initial calculations were done w/ almond cream, weird…. I always keep it in the big bowl since it is easier :-)

  2. I’ve never tried overnight oats before,and I cant believe that. That won’t be for long though, this sounds so good and healthy too!

  3. I know I’m missing out – I’ve never, ever made overnight oats. A lot of the combos I’ve seen haven’t really interested me…but tropical? Yes! I looove mango. I hope school is going well, honey!!

  4. Se ve riquisima la hare para mi y para mis niños ahora que estan de vacaciones gracias:-D

  5. I need to make overnight oats more often! This variety sounds great!

  6. I love overnight oats! This tropical flavour sounds and looks fantastic.

  7. Such a great idea! I’m always on the go and hate skipping breakfast.

  8. I saw this and wanted to make it immediately! So I tried this last night! But i made it with what I had at hime: low fat milk, peach yogurt, and fresh mango and pineapple. It looked great, but tasted bery bitter. I’m wondering if it’s because I used real milk and not almond or coconut milk- is it supposed to taste bitter? I look forward tl making it again following your recipe step by step! :)

  9. HI…I just subscribed to your Instagram and I must say after checking out your website it makes me want to eat even healthier. However, I just wanted to point out that there is a word spelled wrong in the sentence below from this post: think creamy which should be thick creamy. I’m sorry…but can’t help it…English major LOL.

    use any other type of yogurt. I like Greek yogurt because it gives the oats a think creamy

  10. Hi Miryam I just subscribed to your Instagram and I’ve done three super yummy recipes. Two of the quinoa plates, banana bread, and now wanting to try this recipe. Can I use stieel cut oats instead of the rolled ones?

    • Thanks :-) You could use those but the consistency would be a bit grainy and a bit harder, since steel cut oats don’t become as soft as regular rolled oats do. I would suggest using rolled oats but you can try a smaller portion w/ the steel cut oats and see how you like it. Thanks for stopping by.

  11. Hi Miryam: I can’t believe that you manage to prepare 3-4 meals, breakfast and a dessert in 1 hour and a half. How do you do that? What is your secret?!! I would love to be able to get so much done in so little time.
    On another note, I am addicted to your tropical oats!
    Thank you for all the recipes.

    • I am a machine :-) Just kidding. I tend to do easy ones that don’t require much chopping and such and perhaps just one of them being an oven type of meal like my quinoa recipes. I do the overnight oats for breakfast, which just takes 5 minutes to mix the ingredients together, and for dessert frozen popsicles which take another 10 minutes if that! Thanks for stopping by.

  12. I was asking myself the same question! All those meals, breakfast and a desert in 90 minutes!!! Do tell us your secret!! I also really enjoy your tropical oats. I sometimes make them with steel cut oats. Thanks for our great recipes!

    • I keep my meal simple and for that time that I cook no one is allowed in the kitchen. Everything is everywhere in my kitchen counters and messy :-) Thanks for stopping by.

  13. Might seem like a daft question…but should i cook the oats first before mixing everything in?

  14. I made this last night and woke up to it this morning!  SO GOOD!  Thank you for this recipe.  It’s yummy!
