What Is A No Bake Energy Bite?

Imagine your favorite cookie, but without the butter. Or your favorite muffin, but without the flour.

Can you imagine your favorite sweet treat, but without the sugar, and imagine a quick energy pick-me-up but without the guilt!

That, is what these no bake energy bites/balls are.

Healthy Energy Habits

Getting healthy and staying healthy is often just a matter of changing health habits.

Geez, look how clean our hands, shopping carts and doorknobs are now!

I have often wondered, this past pandemic year, as we all became mega-germaphobes, if we would revert back to the way we once did things. Somehow, I think not.

Energy Bites Are A Healthy Habit

If we can be forced to change simple things we do each day, why not dig a little deeper and add a few new habits in our daily food consumption?

I gave a lot of thought as to which foods I wanted to share with you here and why. I think you will not only find them helpful for your immune support, but I believe you will actually look forward to eating them. They are almost too scrumptious to be healthy!

Energy Bites To-Go

Busy lives often require ‘think ahead’ foods to-go with that busy life. Making these energy bites in advance means there is always something healthy to put in your purse, brief case or lunch bag.

I never leave home without a zip bag of a few energy bites in my purse. In this way I am never tempted to grab a fast, unhealthy snack while out and about, when that hunger pang hits.

Since these are power packed with only healthy ingredients, I know I am giving my body the best possible energy boost when I need it most.

What Makes Energy Bites Sweet?

Each of these energy bites are sweetened with molasses, agave, honey or just dates, which are way sweeter than all the other sweeteners.

Zest from citrus. Spices of your choice. The fiber, protein, antioxidants and immune boosters in these no bake energy bites are off the charts!

How To Make No Bake Energy Bites?

A food processor or blender is needed to make these. The ingredients are placed into the processor and whirled until everything is ground and the mix begins to form a ball inside the processor. 

Tablespoon sizes are scooped out and rolled into small balls and placed in the fridge, to firm up, until ready to serve.

If adding ingredients such as carrots or apples, simply peel and chop into small pieces before putting in the processor.

The trick to creating a sticky paste-like texture for the energy bites, is the combination of dried fruits and nuts, pulsed until they form a paste.

Spices, seeds, fresh fruits can be added to layer the dimension of flavors.

No bake energy bites are packed with nutrients made from superfoods and whole foods, high in protein, fiber and healthy fats.

Ingredients

  • Black Energy Bites
  • Prunes – 1 cup

  • Pecans – 1 cup

  • Molasses – 1 tablespoon

  • Cloves – 1/4 teaspoon

  • Mace – 1/2 teaspoon

  • Freeze-Dried Raspberries – 1 teaspoon, crushed for garnish

  • Green Energy Bites
  • Golden raisins – 1 cup

  • Oats – 1 cup

  • Hemp seeds – 2 tablespoons

  • Matcha green tea powder – 1 teaspoon

  • Agave – 2 teaspoons

  • Brown Energy Bites
  • Dates – 1 cup

  • Walnuts – 1 cup

  • Raw cacao – 2 tablespoons

  • Orange Energy Bites
  • Apricots – 1 cup

  • Almonds – 1 cup

  • Carrot – 1, peeled and chopped

  • Fresh ginger – 1 tablespoon, grated

  • Orange zest – 1 teaspoon

  • Honey – 1 tablespoon

Directions

  • These are 4 different recipes, so depending on which you are making, each is prepared the same. Ingredients goes into a food processor. Processed until everything purees and comes together into a ball.
  • Tablespoon size scoops rolled into small balls and placed on a tray, chilled in the fridge until ready to serve.
  • If freeze-dried raspberries (which also come in blueberry and strawberry), are being used to both garnish and flavor, crush to a powder and sprinkle on after balls are formed.

Notes

  • Some of the nuts will produce quite a lot of natural oil when being pureed. 1 tablespoon of oat flour can be added to absorb some of the oil or simply place on a paper towel when balls are formed to absorb, or leave as is. I like the natural oil. 
  • Storage: All of the energy bites that do not have perishable ingredients (such as the orange bites), will keep in the fridge for about 1 month.

My Muffin Madness

 

In my family, I’ve always been known as the ‘Muffin Queen’. Out of necessity, I created muffins for breakfast, lunch, on the go snacks, sometimes dinner and a sweet yet healthyish treat for dessert!
