Such a Quick Snack!
Energy Bites are one of my favourite snacks that I honestly need to make more often. They’re a quick snack that boosts your energy, super easy to make, and no baking required! When I get around to making them, I make a double batch, pop into a container and store in the freezer. I admit I don’t always use a recipe but recently I made this batch for a girlfriend, so I made myself write it down!
I will admit I am a big fan of dates, but even if they’re not a fave our yours, once they marry the peanut butter and maple syrup you don’t really taste them. I roll mine in coconut when I finish rolling them into little balls, but you could also use ground peanuts, almonds, or even sprinkles for the kids!
Question: do you need a food processor? Ideally, it makes it easier to blend everything together and reduces the time to make them, BUT it’s not necessary. Just consider it your little workout for the day.
ALWAYS WELCOME! Honey instead of maple syrup, almond or cashew butter instead of peanut butter, hemp seed instead of flax, it’s all good! You can also add sunflower seeds, dried raisins, cranberries – the list is endless!
Have fun and happy chopping!
