Delightful Energy Bites

​Because they say you shouldn't treat yourself!

We all crave a sweet bite from time to time, let’s not delude ourselves. A diet should not restrict us from having a special moment for our senses. There is and should always be a place in our daily meal plan for a delightful pleasure hitting our sweet tooth! With these chewy brownie bites you will not only satisfy your hunger for a delicious treat, but also nourish your soul.

Today I would like to show you one of my super easy and quick recipes for 100% natural and guilt-free bites, that will give you a great feeling of contentment. I am always asked about this recipe whenever I decide to make them and to share them with friends and colleagues. They are an absolute success among kids and adults, because their taste and texture resemble a treat we all used to love in our childhood.

So here is the recipe for the satiating energy bites. Superfood Energy Balls. It takes just 1​5 minutes, start to finish.

​15min.
Prep
​0min.
Baking
​0hours
Cooling

     Total:

15 ​min.

Ingredients:

10 Dates

1 tbs. coconut oil

6-7 grinded oatmeal (feel free to swap it with other flour if you want)

1 tbs. carob ​powder (you can try raw cocoa powder, as well)

Coconut filings, ground almonds, raw cocoa powder for decoration

How the magic happens:

Soak the dates in water for about 15 minutes (I think that even 10 could be enough) and then cut them into small pieces. Put them into a small bowl, add the carob ​powder, the oatmeal (I always grind it in advance and keep the flour into a metal box) and add the coconut oil but melt it first if you keep it at a cool place. 

Mix until it forms a moldable dough. Take tablespoon amounts and roll them into balls in your palms. Then use a coating of your choice.

Take one or two or as many as you want after a workout to save yourself the long ingredient lists of store-bought energy bars and bites.
