Are you tying to avoid caffeine? Are you drained of all energy 2 hours after you wake up? Do you need a healthy energizing snack but can’t find anything that isn’t loaded with sugar? Perhaps these Energy Bites can help!

I saw a YouTube video of these No-Bake Energy Balls and wanted to create my own recipe. After a few attempts, I perfected my creation and these are by far my favorite. They are absolutely delicious and a perfect healthy snack, breakfast, or treat when you’re craving sugar!

I used my food processor to blend everything together, and then formed them into balls using plastic wrap. As a sugar addict, I must say, lately I’ve been craving these more than sugar! Eat one with breakfast inHere’s how to make them:

High Energy Breakfast Bites

Ingredients

10 almonds, chopped

10 dates, pruned and pitted

2 tbsp shredded coconut

2 tbsp craisins

1 tbsp chia seeds

1 cup oats

3 tbsp honey

3 tbsp peanut butter

1 tsp lemon zest

Directions

Add all ingredients to food processor and blend until it becomes a gritty texture (if you have almond butter than you’ve blended it too much). Form into balls using your palms or drop a few spoonfuls onto a sheet of plastic wrap and form it into a ball, unwrap and repeat. Makes between 10-20 Energy Bites depending on the size you create (my recipe made a dozen 2″ balls, only I couldn’t take the picture fast enough to avoid my family scarfing down half the batch). Enjoy!
