or any other time...Energy Bites!

Even though we are supposed to be 'Safe at Home: many are still grocery shopping enough to clean out the baking isles. Here is a recipe for a healthy alternative to processed sugar and flour cookies. This Energy Bite will naturally give you a sweet treat from the dates and a protein packed power punch from the nuts. Only 4 basic ingredients or you can embellish with flavorings of your choice if you want to improve on the basic recipe. I make a few different batches while I am at it and freeze them. That way when I need a quick pick me up snack, I can grab 2 or 3 balls out and I am ready to go. Be careful though...these are so yummy you should only eat at the most 2 or 3 as a serving size.




Serving Size: 1 or 2 as a preworkout

3 as a snack/meal with water or green tea


1 c. Dates

1/2 c. of 2 of your favorite Nuts

*You can use any mixture or combo of cashews/walnuts/pecans/almonds. Just a total of 1 C.

¼ c. cacao

1 tsp vanilla


In a food processor, grind up your nuts.

After a few seconds, add the dates and vanilla and process more. It will be noisy!

Check after a few more seconds to make sure it will stick together to form into balls

Add the cocoa powder for the final mixing.

Roll into balls. Makes about 15-16. Store in fridge or freezer in an airtight container.

The balls are good as is here or you can customize with flavorings.

*Substitute dark cocoa powder for regular

*Add Mint flavor with mini bits of mint chips or peppermint pieces.

*Add cinnamon

*Add coconut flavor and 1 or 2 tbsps finely flaked coconut

*Add a dash of Pink Sea Salt and mini caramel bits
