These no-bake energy bites are the perfect snack for before or after a workout - or just as a mid-afternoon energy boost. That’s about the time that I can find myself in a slump, and be tempted to reach for the biscuits. These energy balls absolutely satisfy those afternoon cravings without making me turn to more processed and less healthy treats, like chocolate bars or biscuits.
The slow-release energy from the oats combined with the high levels of protein and fat in the nuts and the pleasing sweetness of the dates and cranberries makes for a really tasty, energy-packed snack. Soft, chewy, and naturally sweet, this recipe is so delicious that my kids devour them in minutes! It’s probably the one healthy habit I don’t have to teach them!
If you’re looking for a healthy snack to give you sustained energy, without all the sugar and processed ingredients, these no-bake cranberry and date energy balls are perfect. They’re easy to make, last in an airtight container for up to five days, and can be taken with you on the go. Give them a try!
By the way, if you’re looking for a healthier and vegan alternative that’s still just as delicious, check out my Carrot and Coconut Truffles! They’re equally easy to make but with fewer calories.
If your mixture becomes sticky from the dates, which will make it harder to roll each bite into small balls, wet your hands before rolling each ball.
You will need about 30 minutes to make 12 servings of this recipe, which has approximately 195 calories each. Make sure you have all the ingredients and follow these 4 simple steps. If you have any questions, send me an email and I’d be more than happy to help!
