One day Somer was trying to make a raw-ish brownie out of dates, nuts, and chocolate. Instead, her creation tasted just like those no-bake cookies that her Mom always made as an afterschool snack - that Somer LOVED.
Voila! No Bake, No Stovetop Cookie Bites!

A food processor is almost a necessity for making this recipe super fast. If you don't have one, chop everything finely with a sharp knife and mix it all with a spatula and even your hands. Yes, you got that right!
When I made the Cookie Bites recipe I used pitted deglet dates which were very moist and I used too many, so my bars were a bit gooey, but tasted amazing. If I'd added about 2 Tbsp shredded coconut, or another 2 Tbsp cashews, they would have been perfect.
Soft pitted deglets are less work and cheaper than Medjools. Plus they have less calories, sugars and carbs, reducing the glycemic load somewhat. My deglets were just a little TOO soft!
I didn't have peanut butter, so I used almond butter instead. That might have made the bars more soft.
Next time I make these Cookie Bites, I'm going to try using prunes instead of dates and cacao nibs instead of chocolate chips - just for fun!
