Both of these short, easy, recipes take under ten minuets to make! Both are plant based, and can be made gluten free (By using gluten free oats). I have seen recipes around for different energy bites, but I always think there is too much oil and sugar involved, so I try to cut down on this, to make it healthier, but just as delicious! (I had three coworkers ask for this recipe the same day I brought them in to work!)
1 tbsp Spirulina
1 tsp Cinnamon
1 tsp Ground flax
1 tbsp Raw coconut oil
1 1/2 cups of Pitted dates
1/3 cup of Ground oats
Sesame seeds to coat.
Throw everything into your food processor, and blend away till you form a semi-crumble mixture. You can then roll them out into little balls, and coat with the sesame seeds. Put in the fridge to cool for at least 30 min before eating. That is all there is to it!
Peanut Butter & Oat Balls
1 tbsp Raw coconut Oil
2 tbsp Maple Syrup (Or Agave)
1 tsp vanilla
1-2 tbsp of unsweetened organic almond milk (Or milk substitute of your choice)
2 cups ground oats
2 heaping spoonfuls of natural peanut butter
First mix your raw coconut oil, maple syrup, peanut butter and vanilla together in a large mixing bowl. Then add in your oats, followed by the almond milk, as much or as little as you think you need. Once everything is mixed (Make sure it is not too dry, (Add more almond milk) or too sticky (Add more oats), and roll into little balls. Put these on wax paper, and pop into the freezer to freeze for 30 min before eating. Enjoy!
Most of all, the amounts are just GUIDELINES;
-Throw in more or less oats
-Add some chopped up raw nuts
-For a sweeter treat add dark chocolate organic chips to the peanut butter oat balls
-Allergic to peanut butter? Try an almond butter!
Experiment for what texture and taste YOU like!
