Cranberry Breakfast Bites
You know how sometimes you only grow/learn/discover something when you’re really forced to? When you’re in a corner and the only way to get out is by just figuring out how to deal? That’s how these Cranberry Breakfast Bites came to be. You see, back in December, I made myself the guinea pig to a nutrition program that I was working to create at the time. And this program cut out all grains, dairy, and sugar. Sugar! As a self-professed sugar-addict, this one was quite hard for me, and after two weeks I was staunchly in a sugar-free corner, craving sweets constantly and nearly giving into the temptation of all the tasty Dutch treats I’m still discovering here in Holland. But then I discovered the magically deliciously sweetening power of dates and my world was changed.
To make these cranberry breakfast bites you’re essentially just going to grind the nuts into coarse crumbs in a food processor, then throw in the rest of the ingredients. The dates and dried cranberries help to make the dough stick well together, and also give it a deliciously sweet flavor! We’ll finish it off with lemon zest, vanilla, and sea salt to make these bites absolutely addictive.
