Give yourself a boost of energy and satisfy those cravings with one (or two!) of these easy-to-make, no-bake, really-good-for-you, Cranberry Cashew Energy Bites!
It usually hits me mid-afternoon. This tired sort-of slump that makes me want my bed and a nice, long nap with no interruptions. (We all know that that pretty much never happens.)
Enter the next best thing: these cranberry cashew energy bites! The recipe is not an original of mine, but once I tried it, I loved it, and knew that these little sweet bites of goodness would be making a permanent appearance in our house.
These energy bites are super-creamy, with little bits of nuts throughout, slightly sweet, and with hints of tart, chewy cranberry to balance it all perfectly! (You’ll want more than one!)
You can eat them straight from the food processor with a giant spoon, but I prefer to chill them first; they are extra yummy when cold, and they firm up and hold together more nicely.
Another bonus: they are really easy to make – the kids can even help with this one!
Add all of the ingredients in your food processor, and pulse and blend until the mixture comes together and forms a ball.
Measuring out a Tablespoon of dough each, I roll the little guys into balls and place them in an airtight container and force myself to wait while they get nice and chilled.
You can totally roll them in shredded coconut, too. Or you can do half-and-half. It’s all up to you.
They are the perfect snack, and also work great for re-fueling after a strenuous workout (or climbing several flights of stairs with endless loads of laundry!!)
In what ways would you enjoy these? At home? At work? On-the-go? Try them and let me know what you think!
