Three Nut Energy Bites

I came across these energy bites that are floating around the internet on my search for a healthier snack. I wanted an alternative to packaged items that I would eat every day at work. I can’t believe how many different recipes there are for these; some have chocolate, others peanut butter, and so on and so on. I tried a couple of them and loved them immensely. I knew that I had to make my own, and (while I am of course very biased) these are my favorite ones! The small amount of roasted peanuts gives it that hint of peanut butter flavor that just blends very very well with the sweetness from the honey and dates.

The addition of the almonds and walnuts give it a boost of healthy fats and keeps me full for quite a while! I’ll eat these for breakfast and won’t even think about snacking until lunch has snuck up on me. I make one batch of these on Sunday night and I’ve got enough to get me through my week.

I don’t think there’s a quicker breakfast out here (well…maybe a smoothie, but you get the idea). These are super quick to make and easily transportable. Just keep them in an air tight container in the fridge. I usually take four in a ziplock to work for breakfast or two if I’m using them for a snack. I don’t keep them cool at work, but I do make sure to eat them by the end of the day (and they’re usually gone before lunch). They hang out in my desk drawer until I’m feeling peckish.

Prep Time:30 mins   Total Time:30 min
Makes: about 24 balls
 
Ingredients:
10 dates, pitted
1 and 1/2 cups of raw almonds
1 cups of raw walnuts
1/2 cup of dry roasted unsalted peanuts
1/4 cup of honey
 
Directions:
1) Soak dates in a bowl for 20 minutes.
2) In a food processor, add in all of the nuts and pulse until finely chopped. Be careful not to pulse too long or you'll end up with nut butter!
3) Add in the dates and honey and pulse until the mixture begins to stick together and form balls.
4) Roll into balls and store in an air tight container in the fridge for 1 week. I like to make the balls anywhere between 1/2 to 1 inches big.
