Don’t be fooled by this gluten-free, dairy-free, and sugar-free dessert…while the ingredients are simple and healthy, these energy bites will make your mouth water! This recipe is the perfect little bite for those following a restrictive eating plan, but still craving a delicious treat. I like to pop 1 or 2 of these bites prior to a workout to feel energized without feeling full or heavy. 

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1/4 cup smooth almond butter
  • 3 tablespoon coconut butter
  • 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
  • Unsweetened shredded coconut for rolling
  • Cocoa powder for dusting

METHODS:

  1. In a small saucepan, over low heat, melt together coconut butter and almond butter
  2. Pour the almond butter mixture over the oat mixture and stir well
  3. Roll in the palm of your hand to form a golf ball sized energy ball
  4. Dust with shredded coconut and cocoa powder
  5. Keep refrigerated in a sealed glass container
