Have I mentioned how much I love energy bites!? I think I’ve already got a couple of different kinds…here and here. These use leftover butterscotch chips that I have. Those chips are just taking up precious cabinet space, so I’m trying to think of ways to use the remaining batch. Between the chips and the cinnamon, these are incredible and very sweet. I’m going to have to have Bren eat the leftovers since unfortunately butterscotch chips aren’t vegan. In the meantime, I’ll just make these sans the chips and be good to go!
I added a hint of nutmeg and some cinnamon to help boost the flavor of the butterscotch. Instead of honey, I used agave and it worked perfectly! I think I’ll try using it again for another flavor combination that I have in mind. If you wanted to keep these vegan friendly, I think you could safely make this without the chips and they would taste just fine. Normally, I’m not one for butterscotch but every now and then I just want it.
These are perfect as an afternoon snack or even as a dessert! I love these different energy bites, and sometimes I even eat them for breakfast. These, for me at least, are a bit sweet for breakfast, but if that’s your thing then these would be a healthier alternative.
