Energy balls, bites, or bars have been around for years and I’ve only now got on the bandwagon. So quick, easy, and adaptable! There are many different ingredients and flavour combinations you can use! They're also a healthier alternative to other snacks and desserts that are not so good for you.
I’m not sure why I waited so long to make my own treats, but better late than never!
Date energy balls are so delicious and really keep you energized! The fibre-rich Medjool dates are creamy and sweet (almost caramel in flavour), the dried peaches gives it a fruity touch, while protein-rich pecans and rolled oats add additional flavour and a nice crunch!
The chai spices are mildly spicy, fragrant, and warms up the body a little as you eat it; perking you up when you feel the midday lulls.
I love how portable these snacks are; perfect for a road trip or just to have around for a little snack at work or when you’re out running errands for the day; or let's face it, when you're bored sitting at home and just want to eat a snack.
This recipe is also vegan and is naturally sweetened (no added refined sugar).
