Superfood Energy Bites

gluten-free. vegan.

These are a family favorite.

I tend to frequently be on the road or away from home needing something for a snack. As a healthier eater, going through drive-thru is not an option. The only real solution at times is to make snacks.

This recipe is a nice choice to satisfy cravings. Slightly sweet with healthy proteins and fats for a filling snack. Grab a handful and you should be good to go.

Notes:(1) I used Garden of Life RAW Protein & Greens Powder (this is not a sponsored post), but you can use whatever.(2) Not into ball shaped bites? You can mash these into a cookie shape just as easily.

Superfood Energy Bites

  • prep time: 10-15 minutes
  • cook time: 0 minutes
  • total time: 10-15 minutes

Servings:12-20

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 c. almond flour
  • 6 medjool dates
  • 4 T. superfood or protein powder of choice
  • 2 T. peanut butter (I used creamy)
  • 1/2 t. gluten-free vanilla extract

Instructions:

  1. Place almond flour, superfood/protein powder and peanut butter in high speed blender, blending to incorporate ingredients.
  2. Add dates and vanilla extract. Blend until ingredients are mixed. It takes a bit of side scraping between combining. Stop once ingredients are combined enough where dough sticks together well.
  3. On a parchment lined plate, use a tablespoon to scoop balls out of dough. Don’t let the dough heap over the tablespoon, just scoop enough to fill the spoon and use to roll into a ball. If you have trouble rolling at first, mash ingredients together assembling a ball shape and then roll afterwards if so desired.
  4. Use all of dough and then eat on spot or refrigerate. Store in airtight container. A recommended serving size is around 4 or 5 superfood balls.
