  • Makes 10 Bites

These raw choco bites might look and taste decadent, but they’re mainly made of banana, carrot, and oats. You can make them for dessert or use them as a raw power snack, as they’re sweetened with energizing figs, dates, and raw cacao.

Ingredients

  • 1 carrot
  • 1 banana
  • ½ cup gluten-free rolled oats
  • 3 dried figs
  • 3 dates
  • 2 tsp. raw cacao
