energy bites

      created by wendy bright-fallon of renew wellness (www.renewwellness.net) for our cookbook nourish

Every time I make these, the ingredients are a little different. It all depends on what I have available and/or what my taste buds are searching for. Enjoy the process of making these almost all raw bites! Beware, they are loaded with calories so use them as a pre/post workout or a dessert – not a meal replacement unless, of course, you pair it with a load of veggies and greens. Keeps about a week – if they last that long!

gluten free, raw (almost), vegan (if you use maple syrup)

part one: make almond flour and date paste

      • 1 c raw almonds (or almond meal)
      • 1 c blended dates – about 12 or so large dates
      1. In a large food processor, grind almonds into a powder. Set aside. (This makes your own almond flour/meal.)
      2. In the same food processor, blend the dates into a paste.

part two: begin adding

      • ½ t ground cinnamon
      • ¼ t sea salt
      1. Combine almond flour, salt and cinnamon and blend.

part three: add the rest

      • 3 T goji berries
      • 2 T hemp seeds
      • 2 T cacao nibs
      • 2 T coconut
      • 1 t water (or more, if necessary)
      • 1 t vanilla extract
      • 1 t maple syrup or honey (optional)
      1. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well. (When you pinch the product together, it should hold.)
      2. Press the mix onto a parchment lined tray. Make it as thick as you want.
      3. Cut and serve.

Store in an airtight container or individually wrap for grab-and-go bites.
