Energy Bites

Looking for a sweet snack that has a nutrition packed punch ???

I have exactly what you are working for and you can make it in less than 10 minutes.

These energy bites are packed with omega 3 fatty acids which play a huge role in brain and eye development, support mental health and heart health, have anti-inflammatory properties, and so much more. They also are a source of protein which helps support muscle growth and development as well as a stronger immunity and many other body functions. And last, but not least, they are a source of soluble fibre which supports bowel health, can help to lower cholesterol levels, and helps support satiety.

Here is the recipe…

Ingredients

1 and 1/4 cup Steel Cut Oats

1 cup unsweetened, shredded coconut

2/3 cup natural peanut or almond butter (crunchy or smooth is fine)

1/3 cup shelled hemp hearts

1/3 cup chia seeds

1/3 cup Buckwheat Honey (or regular honey will work too…Buckwheat honey has an anti-inflammatory effect which we really appreciate in our home)

1 tsp. cinnamon

Instructions

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl and let sit in the fridge for 5 minutes. Then roll into balls and place on parchment paper in a glass or Tupperware container and store in the fridge for up to 2 weeks or in the freezer for up to 2 months.

You may also wish to add pumpkin seeds or dried fruit.

Hope you enjoy them as much as we do!

Until next time…stay healthy!
