Energy Bites

I crave sweets during the day and instead of reaching for chocolate, I’m trying (mostly…) to make a healthier choice that will actually fuel my body.  Recently, I tried an energy bite that was delicious, so I decided to re-create it.  Here it is and it is delicious:

*I did not measure all of the ingredients.  Noted below are which ones you may want to use more/less to your preference.

      Engergy Bites (makes around 15 – I doubled the recipe)
  • 1 cup dates, pitted (if dry, soak in warm water for 10 minutes, then drain well.  This will help with moisture)
  • 1 cup almonds
  • 3.5 Tbsp all natural salted peanut or almond butter (maybe a little more/less)
  • 2 Tbsp hemp hearts
  • 2 Tbsp chia seeds
  • about 1/4 cup honey
  • about 1/8 cup cocoa powder + 1 or 2 TBSP
  • 1/8 tsp cinnamon
  • 1.5 tsp vanilla extract
  1. Put all ingredients into a Vitamix/food processor and roll into 1 in balls.
  2. Add more honey if you need more moisture.
  3. To set, refrigerate or freezer for 15 minutes.  Will keep fresh in an air-tight bag or container for up to a week. Freeze for longer term storage.
