3 wholesome ingredients come together to make a healthy no-bake treat in just minutes.
3-Ingredient Nutty Butter Bites are made with raw nuts, creamy nutter butter and pitted dates! That’s it!
Once you have the ingredients, all you need is a food processor or a high powered blender and about 10-15 minutes of your time. They’re a no-bake treat and oh so easy to make…..because that’s how we roll at Simply Nourished!
The pitted dates add a nice, sweet flavor. And even if you don’t care for pitted dates, you won’t even know they’re in this recipe (my husband didn’t and he apparently ‘hates’ dates). I recommend using 10-12 dates depending on how sweet you prefer the bites to be. Personally, I like them more nutty and less sweet so I toss in just 10 dates. It also helps to keep the total grams of sugar in check, as dates are naturally very high in sugar. So although they’re a ‘real food’, they’re still full of sugar so ya might want to stick to enjoying 1-2 bites at a time vs. the entire recipe. Just wanted to clarify!
And we even included a video on how to make them! Comment below and let us know if you find the recipe videos helpful.

Now lets talk about ingredient add in’s and substitutions. The options are endless with these Nutty Butter bites.
You can really change up the flavor by adding in additional ingredients, changing up what kind of raw nuts and/or nut butter in this recipe. For example, in our 4-Ingredient Almond Butter Bites I followed a very similar recipe with the addition of chocolate chips and instead of the cashews that are in these Nutty Butter Bites, I used almonds and almond butter.
So use what you have on hand! Feel free to add in no-sugar added dried fruit like raisins, spices like cinnamon and nutmeg, mini-chocolate chips, cocoa nibs, coconut flakes, chia seeds and the list goes on. If you choose to add additional ingredients, you’ll want to fold them in just before forming the round bites. Other nuts that you could try include pecans, almonds, and walnuts. And as far as nut butters go you could try almond butter, peanut butter, pecan butter, sunflower seed butter or even coconut butter. All are delicious! I encourage you to get creative with what you have on hand (because who likes to make a special trip to the grocery store?!) and let us know which delicious combination you come up with!
Nutty Butter Bites make for a wholesome and tasty snack or I find myself reaching for one at night for a delightful little treat.
