Gluten-Free Energy Bites
Just as good as dessert, but with lots of energizing nutrients to get your day going.
- 1 ¼ cups pitted dates
- 1 cup gluten-free rolled oats
- ¼ cup nut butter
- ¼ cup dark chocolate chips
- pinch of sea salt
- pinch of nutmeg
In a food processor or blender, process the dates until very finely chopped
Add in the oats, nut butter, dark chocolate, sea salt, and nutmeg. Process again until all ingredients are fully incorporated, scraping own the sides of the food processor as needed
Scoop mixture (about a spoonful) into your hand and form a ball. Place on a lined baking tray
Chill the energy bites in the refrigerator for 15 minutes, and store in the fridge in a sealed bag or airtight container. Enjoy!
- The flavors of these bites are super customizable — just keep dates and oats as the base. You can add so many tasty things like lemon zest, dried fruits, crushed pretzels, protein powder, etc.
- I use a mixed nut butter from Trader Joe's that I've been liking a little more than peanut butter lately. It's not as sweet but is packed with flavor that I find more versatile. Use any nut butter here or omit completely — you can add seeds instead if you prefer
