Paleo Chocolate Energy Bites
“Do something today that your future self will thank you for.” -Sean Patrick Flanery
These paleo chocolate energy bites are SO GOOD. The cacao and dates give them a chocolate-y and sweet flavor similar to brownies, but instead of weighing you down, they give you the energy you need to get through the day. I love grabbing a couple as a snack before my daily workout.
All you need to do is combine these ingredients in a large bowl (makes 8 bites)
•8 pitted dates, cut into tiny pieces
•1/4 cup cashews & 1/4 cup almonds (crushed)
•1 T cacao powder
•1 T almond butter
•1/2 T unsweetened almond milk
•1/4 tsp salt &
•1/4 tsp vanilla
Roll into 1 T bites, and store in an airtight container in the fridge.
*Note: You could make it easier on yourself and use a food processor for this, but personally I like the bigger chunks of dates, cashews, and almonds in each bite.
While these take some time to prep, they last five days in the fridge, so you have an instant, healthy snack ready to go throughout the workweek... and plus, they may be the most delectable thing you’ve ever tasted.
