MCLV Mange: Energy Bites

Before making the delicious vegan, gluten-free mac n’ cheese two weeks ago I broke out my food processor and threw together some quick & easy energy bites.

These delicious, chocolatey little balls are somewhere between Choosing Raw’s Five Minute Raw Cacoa Snack Bars and OhSheGlow’s Dark Chocolate Cherry Energy Bites.

 

The main ingredients for these flavorful little bites are cashews and pitted Medjool dates, and then you can flavor them as you like by adding whatever additional ingredients strike your fancy – Coconut flakes, chocolate chips, cacao nibs, peanut butter, carob powder, nuts, dried fruit…

The options are endless!

 

What did I use for this batch? Well I’d just spent some quality time with the bulk bins at Whole Foods so I went with the tasty mixture of carob powder, maca, and mini carob chips.

So. Good.

You mix the cashews and add the dates, and then the rest of your ingredients. Easy peasy!

At that point you can either make them into bar form like Gena from Choosing Raw or in ball form like Angela from OhSheGlows. After you decide you just pop them in the freeze – et voila!

Quick. Easy. Delicious. What’s not to love?

Since I made these I’ve experimented with some other mixtures and ingredients, trying to find the tastiest and healthiest combinations that I can, and I’ll plan to share even more healthy snack bite options with you soon.

Stay tuned for the next MCLV Mange installment or check out previous posts from this series to see what you’ve missed so far:
