Key Lime Pie Bites

No need to spend so much money on date bars at the store, make your own and adjust the lime flavor to your preference.

You may of may not have noticed by now that I sort of love snacks. Particularly quick, easy, and sweet snacks. And that can be a problem when you’re trying to maintain a healthy lifestyle. So, I will continue creating these delicious date bar things, Larabar wannabes, bites, balls, whatever you want to call them. Because they’re quick, easy, and sweet.

I’ll admit I have not tried all the Larabar flavors, and I’m not going to claim that these are “copycat” because I simply don’t know. If I ever had a Key Lime Pie Larabar, it didn’t leave a lasting impression on me, because I don’t know or recall what it tastes like. All I know is that I made these, made the husband eat one, and he liked it. That was enough for me, but then I liked it and all 3 kids liked it too. So there.

Key Lime Pie Bites

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 2 minutes
Total Time: 7 minutes

No need to spend so much money on date bars at the store, make your own and adjust the lime flavor to your preference.

Ingredients

  • 10 Medjool dates, pitted
  • 1 cup Almonds
  • 1/2 cup Cashews
  • 1/4 cup Unsweetened Shredded Coconut or Coconut Flakes
  • Zest 1 Lime
  • 2-4 Tbsp Fresh Lime Juice, about 1 lime's worth

Instructions

  1. Put the dates, almonds, cashews, coconut, and lime zest in the bowl a food processor.
  2. Process until mixture resembles coarse gravel.
  3. While the processor is running, slowly pour in half of the lime juice.
  4. Stop the processor and check the mixture inside. If it sticks together when you smush it, then you've got the right consistency. If it's still crumbly, add more lime juice. You don't want to add too much liquid because the bites will be too sticky.
  5. When you've got the right consistency, roll mixture into tablespoon-size balls. Yield varies depending on how much you eat while you're rolling them.
  6. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for a week or so, if they last that long.

We have enjoyed this soup both with and without the addition of the pork sausage, so it is both Whole30 and vegan friendly. This minestrone soup tastes even better than the endless soup from a certain chain restaurant, and you can make you own endless salad to go along with it.

My kids love these real-fruit, no-sugar gummies and I love that they're getting the benefits from gelatin and real fruit and not the nasty side-effects of corn syrup and artificial colors and flavors.
