No Bake Energy Bites
Who's not making a version of these fabulous little snacks now a days? From moms to athletes everyone seems to have their favourite recipe. Why? Because these are a fantastic quick, simple & healthy grab & go snack. The ingredient options are endless.
If you give these a Google or look them up on Pinterest you will find a multitude of varied recipes that is sure to suit everyone's taste buds. I think for families picking a base that everyone likes then have each family member pick their own ingredients to roll them in is key to everyone enjoying & eating them. Plus what a fun way for the whole family to participate in making their own healthy foods together. The kids will love getting their hands into this sticky mess. I bet if you asked them to make everyone's they wouldn't say no.
This is our base ( as for today anyways :) )
1 Cup quick oats
1/2 Cup almond butter
2 Tbsp dark chocolate covered quinoa puffs ( cacao nibs would be great too )
2 Tbsp coconut palm sugar
**use organic when possible
Yields 12 bites
Add all ingredient's to a bowl
Refrigerate for about 1/2-1 hour
Roll into 12 ball shape portions.
The four ingredient's we rolled ours in used today
1: Shredded Unsweetened Coconut
2: Hemp & Chia Seeds
3: Crushed Pretzels
4: Raw Cacao Powder
Whichever recipe you choose to use or perhaps a new one you create, enjoy & mostly may you be Nutritionally Well.
