I love to make a big batch of these (this recipe will make two dozen) and grab a few when I can sense that rungry feeling coming on (which seems to be all the time now.) Is anyone else in that part of their training where you're hungry all. the. time?! Luckily, these are really quick and easy to whip up, and have been my saviour at work or before I head out for a run. They honestly taste like brownie batter, and I couldn't be happier with how these turned out. My sweet tooth and stomach are both very happy with this one!
Brownie Batter Energy Bites
1/2 cup walnuts
1/4 cup cashews
1 cup of pitted dates
1/2 cup dried cherries
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 heaping tablespoon coconut oil
1/2 tablespoon instant coffee
Next, chop up dates and dried cherries in food processor until they form a paste. (note- make sure all of the pits are removed from the dates!)
Add cocoa powder, coconut oil and instant coffee to food processor. Mix until well combined.
Add dried fruit mixture to nuts in mixing bowl. Mix well with hands.
Form mixture into balls or bars. Refrigerate at least 1 hour and enjoy! (I used a 1/2 tablespoon to measure out the dough and ended with 24 balls).
What's your go-to snack to tackle the runger?
What flavor combinations do you like in your energy bites?
Pin for later!
