Are you looking for a great pre-workout snack that will take you almost ZERO time to prepare? Well, I believe these amazingly delicious Fruit & Nut Energy Bites will do this!
If you’re not on a low-carb or keto diet, then these energy bites are the right snack for you.
It will take you only 20 minutes or less to prepare as many bites as you need to stock for your snack or pre-workout sessions.
Very often, people grab an energy drink full of sugar or energy bar bought in a store. Wouldn’t it better to prepare some healthy snack yourself?
Sugary snacks you buy in a store do not provide you with all nutrients or energy, they will just leave you anxious. They will provide you energy for a while, but then will make you crash soon after.
The Fruit & Nut Energy Bites do not contain any additional sugar. All the sweetness comes from the dried fruit. So whenever you feel like you need some energy or you just go to a gym, but you don’t have time to prepare a nutritious snack or meal, get these power-packed energy bites instead.
Energy snack with right ingredients can boost your energy and won’t make you feel tired soon.
Below is the recipe of this delicious, amazing, easy energy snack.
If you don’t like the dried fruit I used in this recipe, just swap it for a different one of your preference. Don’ worry, it will not harm the recipe, it will just give it a different flavour. So use your imagination to adjust the recipe, if you like. And please share with me your results and feedback! 🙂
FRUIT & NUT ENERGY BITES RECIPE
This recipe will make about 35 portions.
Nutrition per serving: 330 calories Fat: 10g Carbs: 24 g Protein: 37 g
Preparation time: 25 minutes
- 200 g almonds
- 100 g dried apricots
- 100 g dried dates
- 50 g dried cranberries
- 3 tbsp coconut oil
- 1 tbsp orange oil (you can also use the orange zest instead of the oil, it gives a stronger orange flavour)
- Place almonds first in the food processor or a blender and mix until you get almost an almond flour.
- Into a big bowl, place the blended almonds.
- In a blender, add dates, apricots, cranberries and both oils (coconut and orange) or orange zest if you’re not using the orange oil. Mix well until broken down into a paste.
- Add the mixture into the almond flour.
- Mix altogether, the batter should be nice and sticky. If not, feel free to add a bit of melted coconut oil. Be careful not putting too much, otherwise it gets too oily and add on calories and fat 😉
- Store in a fridge at least 1 hour before eating. I recommend storing the fridge for up to one week.
