Coconut Date Bites 4

If you are anything like me, you can’t get through the day without feeling the need to snack constantly! The last few months, I’ve been on a mission to find or create snacks that I can make in advance, are healthy, and most importantly, will keep me full! These Coconut Date Energy Bites are just that. This recipe is super simple, bake-free, no sugar whatsoever and vegan. Each ball is only 92 calories too! Yes, I have finally added nutrition labels to my recipes!

Serving Suggestions:

Make a batch when you have a spare 10 minutes and keep them in the fridge. They’re really convenient to have two of when you need a mid-afternoon pick me up! You can take them to work, have them as a healthy dessert with fruit. Besides, any dessert recipe that calls for no ovens, baking and specific measurements is a keeper for me!

Preparing the Coconut Date Balls:

Dates

One quick note on the dates – best to roughly chop them before putting them in the blender. Also, if they are really dry and a little tough, good idea to soak them for 5-10 minutes in water to help soften them.

Nuts

I used almonds in mine but feel free to substitute for anything else you would rather have.
