Energy Bites are one of the most convenient snacks to make. I love making a batch to snack on during the week. The store perfectly in the refrigerator and I actually even like them better a few days after I make them because they have had time to sit.

Instead of  eating vanilla ice cream (my favvvv treat) when I want dessert, I just eat these instead- it cures my sweet tooth so I’m happy with it. Eating clean is something I love doing but of course, it doesn’t always happen and I am totally okay with that. Speaking of, I brought cinnamon rolls to work today for a potluck so there’s that…it’s called balance!

Clean eating isn’t as difficult as it seems. It is important for me to make snacks like these because if it’s in the fridge chances are we will eat it! Using simple and whole ingredients is key when eating clean. These taste similar to the Cranberry Almond Antioxidant KIND Bars that I’m obsessed with- this is just in a bite size form!

I had so much fun experimenting on making recipe-videos this weekend! Now I know what the big hype is about. I’m a visual person so I completely understand why videos are so popular these days! Does anyone else love to watch step-by-step recipe videos before making a recipe? Or is it just me?  I finally had a free weekend and I wanted to spend a decent amount of time creating new recipes. See video below!

  1. The video really helps to show just how quick and easy this recipe is. Well done! I look forward to trying these.

  2. Hi, I tried the same recipe with maple syrup and it turned out to be amazing but the dough was very sticky. Even after refrigerating, once it’s kept out for more than 10 minutes, it starts becoming sticky. Would you suggest that I reduce the maple syrup but I don’t think so it’ll be sweet. Could you please help me out ?

    1. Hi Ritika! Thank you for trying out my recipe, adding the maple syrup sounds like a yummy idea! I would suggest adding a few extra tablespoons of oats and see if that helps make it less sticky 🙂
