For Diabetics|Wheat Belly|Paleo
I made these nut bites some time back and took some pictures in between making it. These bites are great for diabetics as they are allowed to eat any kind of nuts as long as they eat in moderation. Nuts are allowed in High protein low carbs diets as well such as Paleo and Wheat Belly. Nuts not only makes you feel fuller for long time so one doesn’t get hungry often.
This recipe has dried figs and dates which have bit of sweetness so help to reduce the sugar craving of Diabetics as well as of those who are trying to reduce weight.
Recipe is pretty simple and doesn’t take much of time. Also it has bit of salt in it so its not completely sweet. It’s more of a combination of salty and sweet. It tastes a bit like peanut butter.
So here we go with recipe :–
I have taken two cups of everything and made around 20 -25 bites.Rest depends upon the size of your bites as well. As we make these in lots and send it to friends and family so I am here giving you the quantity for 10-15 bites instead.
Ingredients of Sugar Free Nut Bites:-
almonds 1 cup
PEANUTS 1 cup chopped
FIGS 1 cup chopped
DATES 1 cup chopped
SALT as per taste
BLACK pepper as per taste( you can skip this if you don’t like it )
I don’t add sugar in it as the natural sweetness of figs and dates is good enough. It is completely your choice but then it won’t be paleo or that great for diabetics.
Olive oil/Butter – Or any oil which you are comfortable with. If you like coconut oil then go ahead and use that.
Step 1 – Take out the required quantity of nuts as mentioned in the ingredient list. I sauted peanuts and almonds in a pan. You can roast them in microwave as well. It takes around 4-5 minutes of roasting them in the microwave.
Step 2 – Chop dry figs and dates. So we now have roasted almonds, peanuts, figs, dates and walnuts.
Step 3 – Put all these things in a grinder and add bit of olive oil. As these don’t have water at all you need to add 1-2 tbsp of olive oil in it. I generally grind them in 3-4 lots.
After grinding take them out in a container. Add salt, black pepper, honey (optional.. As I mentioned that I don’t use honey or sugar) and then make small round bites of it.
Store them in an air tight container and keep them in the fridge.
I genrally have 1-2 of these before workout or if I am hungry and I don’t have time I just have 2-3 of these and one glass of milk in my breakfast. These don’t look pretty but taste nice. Nut lovers are going to like these and if you like real sweet bites then don’t waste time in trying them out.
Stay healthy 🙂
