Raw Nut Butter Energy Bites

Equipment Needed

  • Food processor or high powered blender

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup creamy almond butter 
  • 1/4 cup creamy cashew butter 
  • 1/3 cup of raw, unfiltered (local if possible!) honey or pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup ground flaxseed
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened shredded coconut 
  • 1/2 raw almonds, pecans or walnuts (chopped)
  • About a 1/4 cup 70%+ dark chocolate chips 
  • About 1 tbs coconut oil 

*You can also add about a 1/2 cup of gluten-free oats for a slightly less buttery texture of the bites.

Instructions

• Mix together the wet ingredients; nut butters, coconut oil, honey and/or maple syrup in a medium sized bowl.

• Add the shredded coconut, nuts of choice, and dark chocolate chips to your food processor or blender, and pulse until all ingredients are finely diced, but not powdery. I have a high powered blender so for me this usually means only 4-6 pulses to get them the right consistency.

• Next, add the two mixtures together along with the ground flaxseed and blend. At this point I usually knead everything together by hand as it's much easier than trying to get it all mixed evenly using a spoon. Your hands will be messy but it'll be worth it!

• Place the mixture in the fridge for 15-20 minutes so it's easier to form into balls. Grab enough mixture to roll about 1 inch diameter balls. Top each ball with a sprinkle of Himalayan Sea Salt and place back in the fridge for a few hours or overnight.

For optimal freshness keep chilled throughout the day — this also keeps all the healthy fats found in the nuts and nut butters from going rancid.

Enjoy!
