Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 Cups Firmly packed dates roughly chopped (240g)
  • 1 Cup Very firmly packed dried apples roughly chopped (84g) + additional for topping
  • 2 Cups Vegan kettle popcorn I used Boom Chicka Pop
  • 6 Tbsp Powdered peanut butter
  • 2 Tbsp + 1/4 tsp Coconut oil melted
  • 4 tsp Water
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp Natural creamy peanut butter

Instructions

  1. Add the dates and dried apples into a large food processor. Blend until broken down and they come together in a ball.
  2. Add in the kettle corn and powdered peanut butter. Blend until the kettle corn is broken down and the mixture is crumble and combined. Add in 2 Tbsp of the melted coconut oil, reserving the rest for later, and process until combined.
  3. Transfer the mixture into a large bowl and add in the water. Use your hands to make the dough come together in a ball.
  4. Divide the ball by lightly heaping 2 Tbsp between 12 muffin pan cavities, pressing out firmly and flat.
  5. In a small, microwave-safe bowl, melt the peanut butter and remaining 1/4 tsp of oil until smooth and creamy, about 30 seconds. Stir together and divide between each bite, spreading out with a small spoon. Note: you won't be able to completely cover each bite, you'll still see bites of the date mixture through the peanut butter layer. Top each bite with a dried apple ring.
  6. Place into the freezer until firm, about 1 hour.
  7. To un-mold, use a small, sharp knife and cut around the outside of each bite, then insert the small butter knife under each bite to pop them out of the pan. You don't NEED to freeze them, but it makes getting them out of the pan MUCH easier.
  8. DEVOUR!

Recipe Notes

Store bites in the refrigerator, the freezer makes them too hard.
