Almond butter energy bites


  • 2 cups GF rolled oats

  • 5 pitted dates

  • 2 tsp. pure vanilla extract

  • ½ tsp. cinnamon

  • 1 tbs. shredded coconut (optional)

  • 2 tbs. almond milk

  • 2 tbs. raw unfiltered honey (switch out for maple syrup if Vegan)

  • 1/3 cup creamy almond butter

  • 1 cup “enjoy life” dark chocolate chips


Combine all ingredients (except chocolate chips) in a large food processor and blend on medium low for one minute. Then blend for one more additional minute on high speed. Remove lid (be careful of blade) and with a rubber spatula empty mixture into a separate bowl. Fold chocolate chips in with mixture until well combined. Next, take a table spoon and scoop out a heaping scoop of batter and roll into small 2-3 inch balls. Store in an airtight container and refrigerate for up to a week.
