I’m always on the hunt for healthy snacks for myself and for the boys. I’ve been making a variety of different no-bake energy bites recently, with various healthy ingredients, but these are one of my favorites. My husband describes them as being virtuous, which means he doesn’t really like them, but he’ll eat them because he knows they’re fairly healthy. The boys won’t go near these. I eat them as a snack in the afternoon, or as dessert after dinner.
These take no time at all to make because you throw the ingredients into the food processor, mix, then roll into balls. They’re a little sticky when you roll them. I find that they’re best frozen. I eat them straight from the freezer. I could eat these all day long.
