These Iron Bites get their name from the vast amount of iron, nutrients and goodness of each of the ingredients it calls for, its an amazing treat! Try it!!
2 Tbs molasses
6 whole dates (pitted)
3/4 cup dried apricots
1/4 cup dark chocolate (bar or chips)
1/4 cup flax seeds
1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
1/4 cup cashews (raw)
1/4 cup almonds (raw)
3/4 cup oats (rolled +1/4 cup for garnish)
1/4 cup coconut (unsweetened + 1/4 cup for garnish)
Add molasses, dates and apricots to heavy blender at highest speed. Use the tamper/ or spoon to push ingredients down into the blades from the corners.
Blend for 1-2 minutes.
Add the rest of the ingredients. Pulse on medium 15-20 times to combine ingredients.
Mix the remaining oats and coconut on a small plate.
Use your hands to roll golfball sized pieces of the mixture.
Roll in the oats and coconut and keep aside. I added a little cocoa powder to half of the mixtures and made two kinds of Iron Bites 😄
