Red Bean Bites
Its almost Diwali and I am always scouting for healthy and yummy options for home made goodies.
I love red beans aka rajma and rice, my go to easy meal option. So, my pantry is always stocked. This time I soaked a batch to experiment. Its my first time with red beans into something gooey, and i am impressed the way it turned out.

400 g kidney beans (rajma), cooked
150 g oats
10 dates (6)
50 g peanut butter (homemade)
4 tbsp beetroot powder
1 pinch of salt
Place the oats in your blender or food processor and pulse until they reach a fine consistency
Add in the kidney beans, dates, peanut butter and salt and process into a smooth and non-sticky cookie dough texture. You can add a some oat flour if the dough is too sticky. If you feel its tough, add a little milk.
Transfer to a bowl, add beetroot powder, I personally love the natural colour it adds. Using your hands, form medium balls and roll them in a little oats
Place the balls in the fridge for at least 2 hours before eating.
I kept them in the freezer for a few hours and found that they taste even better!
