These lil snack bites will give you a boost of energy before the gym, or tide you over until dinner (hanger helper), or just generally satisfy a little sweet tooth without being over indulgent. These are date/nut based, and the way you flavor them is totally up to you. The good thing about these is that you can really do whatever you want with them, depending on what you have on hand. Here I made two versions: Goji and Maca (darker ones) and Carrot Cake. Once you’re done just pop them in the fridge and snack at your leisure!
Place all ingredients in a food processor, and pulse for a minute or two, or until the ingredients have all broken down into a crumbly, sticky consistency. If it’s just not sticking, add more dates. If it’s too sticky, add more nuts or flax. Once ready, take out small amounts and form a ball with your hands.
• 10 pitted dates
• 1/3 C walnuts
• 1-4 carrots, depending on thickness. (I used 4 super thin carrots. Start with less and add to your liking)
•1-2 tbsp ground flax seed (this works as a binding agent..carrots are v wet)
Goji and Maca
• 10-15 pitted dates (you need more dates with this one. the dry goji berries are harder to blend)
• 1/3 cup cashews
• 1/3 cup dried goji berries
• 2 tbsp Maca powder
*Blend all ingredients first, then roll balls in the Maca powder.
