(clean eating) almond joy bites

 almond joy bites | my skinny sweet tooth

It’s no lie that I’m a sucker for an Almond Joy candy bar (or chocolate & coconut) … any time of day. Breakfast? Dessert? Yes, YES!

However, eating candy bars everyday is not considered “in moderation” in my book. Once a week, perhaps. But in an attempt to eat a little cleaner, these will be my Almond Joy swap. Who needs a sugar-filled, coconutty candy bar? Not this girl.  If I ate one of these little nuggets with my eyes closed, I would think I was chomping on the real deal. Seriously … you’re only 4 ingredients away from satisfying that Almond Joy/candy bar craving.

Raw.
No bake.
Super easy.
Guilt free.

What are you waiting for? Yep, I’m going to eat one right now …


(clean eating) almond joy bites:
Yeilds 8 servings
Serving Size: 1 almond joy bite
Points Per Serving: 2pp each or 3 for 5pp (← go ahead, have 3 😉 )

8 dates, pitted
8 raw almonds
2T unsweetened shredded coconut
3oz dark chocolate, melted (I use 72% dark chocolate. Use milk chocolate if desired, but points may differ)

•Slice each date at the top to make an opening and stuff each one with an almond.

•Melt chocolate in a microwave safe bowl.
•Dip stuffed dates in the chocolate.
•Coat each piece with coconut and let dry/harden on some parchment paper.
(and if you’re impatient, like me, pop them in the fridge to speed up the hardening process!)
•Devour these clean eating beauties whenever your little heart desires.
•Store in a cool, dry place.

Look how adorable they are! ↓♥
