I love cinnamon. I have always been a huge fan of cinnamon. There’s just something about the sweet spicy flavour that draws me in over and over again.
I love medjool dates. Pre AIP, Larabars were my go-to snack. A bar made from dates and nuts, brilliant! Now that I’m on the autoimmune protocol, nuts are out, but dates? They are still allowed occasionally, and in moderation, since they are quite the sweet treat. My fave are medjool dates, they just melt in your mouth!
I love plantain. Nah, I’m totally obsessed with plantain! I usually enjoy it by frying slices in alot of coconut or avocado oil. They are awesome. But every once in awhile, I like to have a convenient bag of plantain chips. Yes, I said CHIPS! You guuuys, I’m on a strict elimination diet and I’m eating CHIPS! I just can’t even!
So with Valentine’s Day coming up, I wanted to use my beloved cinnamon in a little AIP treat. Holidays are permission to have a small treat, am I right? Three of my fave ingredients and five minutes later, these cinnamon crispy date bites were born!
- Place all ingredients in a blender or food processor and process until it comes together as a ball and plantains chips are broken up into tiny pieces.
- Use hands to roll bite sized pieces.
- Enjoy right away or place in the refrigerator for a few hours and enjoy once cool. I personally prefer them cool!
