    Almond Butter Bites were very easy to make and very good to eat as well 🙂 Not too sweet but just enough! I rolled my finished product in the coconut!!

  2. Great! I’m so glad you liked them. The Almond Butter Bites are definitely a favorite of mine. Thanks for your comment. 🙂

    i make these at least once a month…..as gifts to friends to get them hooked on a vegan lifestyle! Yummie

  4. Where do you find almond butter? Or do you make your own?

    • You can buy it or make it yourself. It tends to be pretty expensive. You can also substitute any nut butter for this recipe, such as peanut butter.

  5. Do you know the nutritional value of these?

    • Tara, I haven’t calculated this recipe, but you could do it yourself with an online program. I like myfitnesspal.com; it has a feature to add a recipe and determine nutrition facts.

  6. These were just what I needed for my sweet tooth. I made them with all natural peanut butter instead of almond butter and they were delicious! I have made so many of your recipes on my 21 day fast and they have all been great! Thanks 🙂

    Can you use the golden raisins instead of the dark ones?

  8. Hi, Since nut butters normally have some type of sugar or natural sweetener in them, can we still use them? I haven’t found any almond butter without some form of sugar in it.
    Thanks!

    • There is a variety of nut butters that don’t contain any added sugars. If you do a Google search, you’ll see several listed. Also, some stores have machines where you can make your own.

  9. Im going to try this w dried cranberries and the pure peanut butter (:

  10. These look good. I’m on the daniel fast for the second time going on day six.. I’m fighting the fight of faith for the survival and revival of my fiancé who is in a coma and was diagnosed with a rare and deadly form of brain cancer so I’m fasting more than not. I’m becoming very close with God.. And I love the Daniel fast! Last time I did it, I got too obsessed with the food and spent a lot of time watching recipe vids but this time I’m just on here, Pinterest and google. Anyway I’m gonna try this.. Just with some date honey added cause I like it very sweet! 🙂 I just made my first batch of date honey today and I’m so happy.. I have sugar! I tried it in my oatmeal today and it was delish! Honey date cinnamon and walnut oatmeal ! Would have been great with apples too.

    • Rachel, thanks so much for your comments and suggestions. I’m sorry it has taken a few days to respond. How is your fast going? I believe the Lord is working powerfully in your situation as you honor Him. May He bring healing to your fiancé and restore his health.

  11. These are delicious! Thank you so much for sharing!

  12. How about Weet bix and those wheat biscuits like Ryvita etc, can they be eaten during the fast.

  13. Thank you very much for this wonderful site….I am a first timer from Sydney Australia and would like to know whether root crops like Yuca (cassava) and Taro can be eaten during this wonderful time.

  14. I tried several recipes this last weekend and this was one of them. I used natural peanut butter instead and added about 1/4 cup of oat flour to help everything stay together. Turned out so good!! This is my breakfast along with a banana. I am at the end of week one of my fast and have lost 7 pounds. This fast isn’t a diet, it is God’s way of helping me deal with my food issues (emotional/stess eater) and learning to be healthier. I don’t plan on ever going back to my previous menu choices and only through the Grace of God will I continue with a Vegan menu. I can’t thank you enough for all the work you have put into this site. Aside from Gods amazing love for me, it is one of the major reasons my journey has been so successful. May God continue to bless this ministry.

    • Mina, thank you for your wonderful testimony! I love to hear how God is working. He will help you continue the healthy patterns you’ve adopted on this fast. And, He will bless you for honoring Him by taking better care of your body. Thank you for beginning 2015 in prayer and fasting. May the Lord strengthen you with His power and fill you with His peace as you serve Him!

    All i have is roasted sunflower seeds. I don’t like them as much as raw so not sure i will use them. I will wait til I have the raw ones.

    Kristen, I was told that cranraisins could not be eaten on the fast, is this true?
    I enjoy your blog, it has helped me with starting my fast my first year and I have referred to it each year after so that I could learn from the questions you are asked and have answered. I Thank God for giving you the vision to share your faith and knowledge with others. Keep it up!

    God Bless You

    • That’s correct because Craisins have added sugar. Any dried fruit is allowed as long as “sugar” isn’t listed in the ingredients. Thanks for your question and for continuing to seek the Lord through fasting!

  17. All these comments are so inspiring!! Our church is doing the Daniel Fast together. It’s been fun getting together and talking about different recipes. Most of them are from your site! We are having so much fun trying different foods and staying healthy doing it! Thank you so much for publishing all these great recipes! This might very well be a life changing eating style for us! Never thought we would enjoy a fast !!

    • Hi, Becky! Thanks so much for your comments and feedback! I’m glad you have been blessed by my website. May the Lord bless you and your church in mighty ways as you seek Him in prayer!

    Hi, I’m going to start Daniel fast for21 days, my question is if almond butter is ok and why or what kind of nut butter to buy.

    Esther C.

    • Hi! I’m glad to hear you’re doing the Daniel Fast. Any nut butter is acceptable as long as it doesn’t contain added sugar or any other restricted ingredient. Raw nut butter is best. Thanks for your question, and may God bless you as you seek Him!

  19. Well these are just delicious bites of happiness! The raisins add that little bit of sweet and tie everything together. Thanks for this! I’ve done the Fast 3 times but never noticed this recipe until now.
