These Coconut Coated No Bake Energy Bites, with just prunes, almonds, chia seeds, and orange zest, are a quick and healthy snack or on-the-go breakfast!
These No Bake Energy Bites are seriously simple. Our spotlight ingredient this week is plums, and we’re taking them to a new level by using their dried version, prunes, as the foundation for these energy bites. We’ll throw in some coarsely ground almonds and chia seeds for healthy fats and proteins, and orange zest for a little zing of citrusy flavor. Roll them in shredded coconut so they’re not sticky (and so they look like snowballs and you can pretend Christmas is closer than it is), and you’re all set!
- ½ cup 90 g almonds
- 1 cup 250 g packed prunes
- 1 Tbsp 12 g chia seeds
- 1 Tbsp orange zest
- Pinch of salt
- ½ cup 45 g shredded coconut
- In a food processor, process almonds until coarsely ground. Add prunes, chia seeds, orange zest, and salt, and process until the mixture is evenly mixed and forms a ball.
- Form teaspoon sized pieces of dough into balls and roll in the shredded coconut to coat.
