Today I'm sharing one of my new favorite things - and it's Whole30 compliant!
During my Whole30, there were moments that I just desperately wanted something sweet. Something to snack on while my husband downed another spoonful of ice cream. Determined not to give into the non-compliant cravings I was experiencing, I searched on Pinterest for "Whole30 snacks" and found this recipe for "energy bites."
Truth be told, I intended to make "bites," I did. But it just didn't happen. My mix wasn't adhering to itself (found out later that a little patience and refrigeration solves this problem), and by the end of everything I just wanted to faceplant into the bowl. What resulted from my frustration, however, was a delicious dip that goes perfectly with a handful of roasted plantain chips from Trader Joe's.
Jessica's Fruit & Nut Dip:
1 1/2 T coconut oil
3 T unsweetened cocoa powder
Handful slivered almonds
Handful crushed pecans
1 C dried apricots
1/2 C dried figs, chopped
1/3 C cashew butter
Pulverize all ingredients except cashew butter until all is combined into small, even granules. Spoon into bowl and combine with cashew butter with a spatula. Chow down.
If you're not doing Whole30, this dip is still super delicious. Put it on toast, crackers, bananas, what have you.
