Almond Butter/Coconut/Cranberry Energy Bites

To quote tumblr: “Boys are out, drinking almond milk is in.” Or in this case, EATING almond butter bites is very, very in.

I made these yummy little bites in just about 15 minutes this morning! Super easy, delicious, and vegan friendly. And no baking required!IMG_7911.JPG

I didn’t have all the ingredients from the original recipe, and so I switched it around a bit and they ended up turning out great.

Prep time: 10-15 minutes

Makes: About 15 bitesIMG_7903.JPG

 

  • Dry Ingredients
    • ¾ cup coconut flakes
    • ¾ cup rolled oats
    • ¼ cup almond meal
    • ¼ cup dried cranberries (or whatever you want to add in! chocolate chips, cacao nibs, almonds)
  • Wet Ingredients
    • ¾ cup almond butter (the original recipe called for liquidy almond butter, but mine was very thick, so I added in some almond milk until it had a creamier consistency)
    • ¼ cup Bee-Free Honey- made from apples (Maple syrup or agave works as well)IMG_7895.JPG
  • Instructions
    1. Mix together all the dry ingredients listed above in a large bowl. (Flakes, oats, almond meal, cranberries)IMG_7893.JPG
    2. Stir together the wet ingredients. (Almond butter, apple honey/maple syrup/agave)
    3. Pour the wet mixture over the dry mixture. Use a spatula to fold mixtures together.
    4. Use your hands to roll the mixture into little bites. If the mixture is too dry add in more almond butteror apple honey as needed.IMG_7915.JPG
These can be stored for up to two weeks in the fridge or frozen for a month. Enjoy!
