Before my first attempt at making the Oh She Glow’s delicious vegan, gluten-free mac n’ cheese two weeks ago I broke out my food processor and threw together some quick & easy energy bites.
The main ingredients for these flavorful little bites are cashews and pitted Medjool dates, and then you can flavor them as you like by adding whatever additional ingredients strike your fancy – Coconut flakes, chocolate chips, cacao nibs, powdered peanut butter, nuts, dried fruit, carob powder…
The options are endless!
What did I use for this batch? Since I’d recently spent some quality time with the bulk bins at Whole Foods I went with the tasty mixture of carob powder, maca, and mini carob chips.
You mix the cashews and add the dates, and then the rest of your ingredients. Easy peasy!
At that point you can either make them into bar form or a ball form, then you you just pop them in the freeze – Et voila!
Quick. Easy. Delicious. What’s not to love?
Since I made these I’ve experimented with some other mixtures and ingredients, trying to find the tastiest and healthiest combinations that I can, and I’ll plan to share even more healthy snack bite options with you soon.
