“Cookie Dough” Energy Bites

Energy bites are extremely versatile and can be adjusted easily. They’re a great slow burning fuel for busy people on the go, and, as they’re slightly sweet, can curb a sugar craving and prevent reaching for a convenient, less nutritious treat that will have you crashing within an hour.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups natural almond butter (any nut butter is good! Smooth or crunchy)

  • 1/2 Cup maple syrup

  • 2 TBSP ground flax

  • 1- 3 TBSP coconut flour

  • 2 TBSP chia seeds

  • 3/4 Cup any unsweetened crispy cereal like crispy rice or natural corn flakes

  • 1 Cup dark chocolate chips

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • 1/2 tsp sea salt

Steps:

  • With a hand mixer, beat the nut butter and maple syrup until smooth and thick.

  • Add the flax and coconut flour and mix for another few seconds. If your mixture is still very wet, add a bit more coconut flour. Start with less and add more if needed. Nut butter moisture levels vary.

  • Add chia seeds, chocolate chips, crispy rice cereal and salt. Mix until *just* combined.

  • Roll into small balls with your hands and place on a cookie sheet, on parchment, and put in the freezer to set (15-20 mins).

  • You can enjoy straight from the freezer, or, several hours later, from a Tupperware in the bottom of your bag, at room temperature.

Enjoy! ❤️
