No-Bake Vegan Energy Bites
Cooking Time: 15 min
- 10 Medjool dates, pitted
- ¼ cup of cashews (or almonds, walnuts, pecans, peanuts)
- ¼ cup of old fashioned oats
- 2 tbsp. of unsweetened shredded coconut
- 1 tbsp of coconut oil, melted
Put dates into a food processor (or a smoothie maker like I did) and process until they’ve broken up. Then add cashews, oats, 1 tbsp. of shredded coconut and melted coconut butter into a processor and process well again. Put the mixture into a bowl and roll 7-8 small balls. Use another tablespoon of shredded coconut for garnishing.
You can eat it right away but the bites will taste a little better after you put them in a refrigerator for 30 min or a freezer for 15min. Store them in a closed container or Ziploc in a refrigerator.
WARNING! Energy bites are very tasty and extremely nutritious! That’s why they work as a perfect pre-workout snack or a healthy desert. But! They are high in calories so limit your portion to 1 ball!!!
