BM #94 Week 2 Day 2 - 

For the second day of sweets without refined ingredients, I have here some healthy bites made with pumpkin, almonds, dates and coconut. 

These bites made a delightful snack and a treat for friends on the eve of Diwali.

Keep in mind that these were very addictive and they were made on a cold day and might have survived for a couple days more in the wintry climate we are experiencing right now.

Ingredients - 

Pumpkin peeled, cubed 1/2 cup
Fresh Dates 8
Almonds 1/2 cup
Dry Coconut powder 1/2 cup + more for rolling

Method Of Preparation -

Boil the pumpkin cubes and mash them (or 1/4 cup of store bought pumpkin puree can also be used).

In a chopper, coarsely grind almonds and set aside.

Make a coarse paste of the dates .

Combine the pumpkin puree, coarsely crushed almonds, coarsely ground dates and coconut powder.

Min well and pinch bite sized portions of the mixture and roll into any shape desired.

Roll these bites in dry coconut powder and arrange them on a platter. Serve immediately.

These bites stayed fresh for 2 days on the countertop.
