Energy Bites

Healthy, protein packed bites for the whole family.

  • 70g oats
  • 60-70g almonds, cashews or whatever nuts you have. 
  • Optional desiccated coconut, some for rolling at the end, plus a few TBSPs for the content of the balls
  • 10 Medjool dates de-stoned (if they are hard, soak in hot water before whizzing)
  • 3-5 tbsps of melted coconut oil..
  • 1 tbsp of peanut/ nut butter
  • Optional 3 tbsps Cacao


You'll need a food processor. I have actually managed this in a nutri-bullet but it's not an easy task!

Whizz your dry stuff, the nuts, oats and coconut and empty into a bowl.

Whizz about 10 dates with 3-5 tbsps of melted coconut oil.

Add a tbsp of peanut butter and the dry ingredients, plus 3 tbsps cacao if desired. Whizz.

Now the kids can join in. Roll into balls and through the in dried coconut if desired.

Freeze or demolish in a few days. Keep in the fridge.
