All Natural Energy Bites


These are perfect for a mid afternoon or pre-workout snack to give you that extra boost of energy!! With fiber packed nuts and seeds, and natural sweetness from the dates... you've got the perfect fix to conquer the day!!

1 cup whole dates
2 tbsp coconut oil 
1-2 tbsp honey depending on your preference of sweetness
1 Tbsp Chia Seeds
2 Tbsp pumpkin seeds
2 Tbsp sunflower seeds
2 Tbsp slivered almonds
1 tbsp flax seeds
3 tbsp shredded coconut- optional
1-2 tbsp coconut flour- I only use this if it's too sticky

In a food processor combine dates, coconut oil, honey, chia seeds, & flax seeds. Mix until pureed and comes together in a ball. In a bowl mix the remaining seeds until evenly distributed. This is when I would mix in a little coconut flour to help press it together (those dates are sticky sweet!) Form the mixture into a disk or patty and wrap in plastic wrap. Place in refrigerator to firm up. About 2 hours. Cut into 1 inch squares and enjoy the healthy goodness my friends!! *Store them covered in refrigerator for up to 2 weeks

  3. Good sharing, for healthy purpose, Chia seeds offer the highest volume of Omega-3, as well as addition fiber (soluble and insoluble) along with vitamins or perhaps minerals you don’t usually get whenever you take sea food oil. Chia seeds giving you long lasting energy during the day moving in deep, restful sleep during the night time. May read this article about Chia seeds at:
