Looking for a delicious, nutty and healthy snack? I’ve got you covered.
These Energy Bites are made with just 5 simple ingredients you can recognize, spell and pronounce. No chemicals or added sugars! But instead of focusing on what they don’t have, let’s talk about what they do — rich and decadent sweetness, healthy fats, antioxidants, and anti-inflammatory benefits.. it also happens to be one of the easiest things to make!
- 8-10 dried Medjool dates, pitted
- 1/4 cup almonds
- 1/8 cup chia seeds
- 2 tbsp sunflower seeds
- 2 tbsp peanut butter
- shape into balls and roll in coconut flakes or cacao nibs if you like!
- Optional: shredded coconut, cacao nibs
Place dates into a high-power blender or food processor. Pulse dates and nuts until you've reached a smooth consistency. Scoop mixture onto a flat, non-stick surface, preferably parchment paper. Form mixture into 1-inch balls, about the size of a ping-pong ball. Roll in coconut flakes or cacao nibs if you want to switch up the flavors and add some crunch to your bite!
