Chocolate Chip Oat Energy Bites
I've been eating these all day and there are only two left. They are an awesome snack especially when you're craving sweets. Everything in them is good for you, the only slight sugar rush would be from the chocolate chips but you can put as many as you want in or just eliminate them altogether.
As with all recipes like this, add more ingredients than I did. Use this recipe as a base and build from it.
10 dates, pitted or 5 pitted dates and 1/4 cup of dried cranberries
1/2 cup of rolled oats
2 tsp of vanilla extract
2 tbsp of hemp seeds
1 heaping tbsp of coconut oil, melted
1/4 cup of dairy free chocolate chips
2 tbsp of peanut butter (optional)
In your food processor, add the dried fruit, rolled oats, vanilla extract, and hemp seeds (and peanut butter if you're using it). Melt the coconut oil and measure out the chocolate chips. Turn your food processor on high, process on high and add the melted coconut oil. The mixture will become sticky and clumpy. Hand mix in the chocolate chips, roll the mixture into balls and refrigerate in an airtight container. This recipe made about seven bites.
