Lately, I’ve been trying to eat sugar and grain-free, it can be challenging to find snack options that are both satisfying and nutritious. However, these energy bites tick all the boxes as Gluten-Free Energy Bites.
Here is a really YUMMY recipe for energy bites. They are great to grab quickly.
These energy bites have quickly become a staple in my diet because they’re so easy to make and perfect for when I need a quick snack. You may want to make a double batch. They quickly disappear in my house.
Ingredients for Energy Bites
Sugar-free Syrup I used Choc Zero. You could use honey instead or any sugar-free syrup)
Recipe for Gluten-Free Energy Bites
1 cup pulsed sliced almonds (you can use pulsed almonds for any recipe that calls for oats.)
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup sugar free syrup or honey- I used ChocZero syrup
dash of salt
1/2 tsp. vanilla
2 Tbsp. cacoa powder
Mix the ingredients thoroughly in a large mixing bowl, using a spatula or spoon to combine everything evenly. Be sure to scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl to ensure that all ingredients are incorporated.
Once the mixture is fully combined, use your hands to roll the mixture into small balls. The size of the balls can vary based on your preference, but aim for a size that is easy to pop into your mouth as a quick snack.
Store the energy bites in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
