Almond Butter Energy Bites
These naturally sweet Almond Butter Energy Bites will certainly satisfy your sweet tooth. They make a perfectly healthy after school snack for my kids and a guilt free afternoon bite for me that energizes me to keep going.
Servings: 20 balls
- 1 cup almond butter
- 1/3 cup honey
- 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1/3 cup pitted Medjool dates, chopped
- 1/4 cup raw sunflower seeds
- 1/3 cup raw sesame seeds, for rolling
In a large bowl, mix the almond butter, honey, cocoa powder, cinnamon and salt together. Stir in the dates and sunflower seeds.
Take a heaping tablespoon of the mixture and form it into a ball in your hands. Roll the balls in the sesame seeds to coat.
Although they can be enjoyed right away, they are better when they've had the chance to firm up in the refrigerator.
Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
