Coach Jentry cooked up this recipe back in 2019, and I thought it was the perfect time to repost since we are all currently figuring out how to make the changes we have made this month last. These yummy bites are a great alternative to junk food, with lots of nutrient rich, whole food ingredients. Enjoy and cheers to day 28! 🙂 Coach Michelle

ENERGY BITES

Vegan, gluten-free, peanut-free, refined oil-free

Recipe by Jentry Lee Hull adapted from Give Me Some Oven No-Bake Energy Bites

Yields ~16 bites

INGREDIENTS 

METHOD

  • Warm almond butter and maple syrup in a large, microwave-safe bowl for about 15-20 seconds. Mix thoroughly.
  • In a separate, smaller bowl, whisk together remaining ingredients. 
  • Incorporate the dry mixture in with the wet, and stir with a spatula or spoon until well-combined.  
  • The mixture should be sticky. If too dry, add more nut butter. If too wet, add more oats.
  • Once blended, scoop and form into 1-inch-sized balls. Place in an even layer in a baking dish or other sealable container, and cover.
  • Cool in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
  • Store in an air-tight container for up to a week in the refrigerator or in the freezer for a couple months.

NOTES*

  • Best to grind whole flaxseed at home rather than buying pre-ground. Use a clean coffee grinder to finely mill the flaxseed and store any leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge.
  • Whole flax will last longer and is less prone to spoilage.

Thrive on,
