Maple Sea Salt Cashew Bites

Maple Sea Salt Cashew Bites

     I love anything maple flavored. As a child that meant sugary "maple" syrup and maple flavored cookies in the shape of a maple leaf ( have you ever had one? They are SO good!). When I discovered there was a more natural maple extract available I had to experiment and make something that would satisfy my maple craving! I love the combination of a little sea salt mixed with something sweet. I used dates to sweeten these so you are getting the bonus of fiber and all the good things that are packed into dates! These bites are easy to make and grab when you want a quick snack or something sweet!

Maple Sea Salt Cashew Bites
Makes 10 


-1/2 cup unsalted cashews
-1/2 cup pitted dates ( I use medjool dates)
-1/2 tsp maple flavor ( I use Frontier Co-Op brand)
-1 tsp water
-2 TBSP flax meal ( you can leave this out but need to add more cashews or they will be sticky)
-1/4 tsp sea salt ( plus a little more for sprinkling on top)


Place all ingredients in a food processor and pulse until the mixture becomes smooth and starts to stick together. The mixture should be sticky but not so sticky you can't roll them into balls. If it is too sticky add a tablespoon more of cashews at a time until it is the right consistency. 

Roll the mixture into 10 equal balls and place in the refrigerator to set.

Sprinkle the top with a few flakes of sea salt if desired.

Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week.
