Almond & Date Energy Bites

Almond & Date Energy Bites

I never would have considered myself a date person, but I seriously love these little energy bites. They are a great snack at my desk or before/after a workout and they’re healthy. My cousin had asked me how to make them, so I finally got around to writing this up; it’s so easy it hardly counts as cooking!

Ingredients:

  • 10 dates (pitted)
  • 2 T almond butter (can substitute an alternate nut butter- I love cashew!)
  • 1/3 C cocoa powder or chocolate protein powder

Recipe:

1. Remove the seed from the dates using a sharp knife.

2. Combine all ingredients in a food processor or magic bullet until smooth. Small bits of date will remain, but you don’t want any chunks. If you need, add in 1 T of water to help.

3. Roll the dough into balls using your palms, about the size of a ping pong ball.

4. Arrange on a foil wrapped baking sheet and place in the freezer for an hour. I prefer them cold, but you can enjoy them at room temperature too!

Makes about 12-14 pieces!
