Peanut Butter Bites

INGREDIENTS: 1 cup almonds 1 tsp. vanilla extract 1/2 tsp. cinnamon 1 cup pitted dates heaping 1/2 cup peanut butter two pinches of salt (if your pb isn’t salted) In a food processor, pulse the almonds until a coarse meal forms. Add the vanilla, cinnamon, dates, peanut butter, and salt if using. Pulse everything together until they are generally uniform in color and texture. The mixture should stick together when pressed between your fingers. If it seems dry, add another Tbsp. of peanut butter. Roll dough into scant tablespoon size balls. Press them down with a fork to make a cross hatch. Repeat with remaining dough. Cover and keep chilled in the fridge.   Source: Recipe adapted from La Mesa  ]]>
