You may have seen my version of energy bites on my instagram @echic. I call my version Amazeballs! Now I'd like to properly thank Caitlin for the recipe. I had fun adding my own twists to them and received tons of compliments, even by the Hubs.
Go Crazy, Mix and Match:
Dark Chocolate pieces
Shredded Coconut(Sweetened) Use 1/2 the amt.
Protein Powder(I added 1.5 scoops)
Energy Bite Recipe
Makes approximately 2 dozen depending on size
*1/2 C nut butter (almond butter, peanut butter, sunflower seed butter or any other nut or seed butter. Anything will work here)
*1/3 C honey
*1 C old fashioned rolled oats(you can toast for a nuttier flavor at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes)
*1 C shredded unsweetened coconut
*1/3 tsp vanilla
*pinch of sea salt if using a natural nut butter with no added salt
*1/2 C other add-ins(any kind of whole or roughly chopped nuts or seeds, dried fruit,
good quality chocolate chips, etc)
In a large bowl add the nut butter, honey or other sweetener, vanilla and salt if needed. Then combine with any additional add-ins and mix well. Once it’s all combined place in the fridge for about 30 minutes.
Remove from the fridge, scoop out some dough and roll into a ball. If yours are too sticky you can consider adding more dry ingredients into them or rolling them in something like ground nuts, coconut, etc so they aren’t as sticky. Place them in an airtight container either in the fridge or freezer for quick and easy snacks.
