Orange Cocoa Energy Bites

Energy Bites are my favorite grab and go snack! Sometime I have 1! Sometimes I have 3! No guilt! I’ve made Lemon Spirulina ones and Cranberry Almond in the past, but these Orange Cocoa ones I’m obsessing over lately! I’ve bought these before at cafes for a $1 a pop and it cost me less than $5 to buy a package of dates at Trader Joes. Not to mention that I only need half the package to make the bites! I can form about 20 bites out of the batch. (Of course you can make more or less out of the batch depending on how big or small you want to make these energy filled morsels.) Enjoy!

Orange Cocoa Energy Bites
1/3 cup of steel cut oats
1 cup of dates (don’t forget to take out pits.)
2 tbsp of fresh organic orange juice
1/2 cup of sliced almonds
1/2 cup of sunflower seeds
1/2 cup of almond butter (or any nut butter)
1-2 tbsp of unsweetened cocoa powder

Blend all ingredients in a food processor until everything is mixed. Then form balls out of the mixture and refrigerate for at least 30 min then transfer to Tupperware containers to store! (Last up to 2 weeks.)
