Homemade snacks are a must when you want satisfying and healthy that you can control. I love to test our new ideas and combinations from what I’ve learned from others, what people have shared and what I just find will quench my curiosity. I’ve been exploring different types of energy bites which include a combination of nuts, seeds, nut butters, dried fruit and oats. I’ve gotten a couple of crows pleasers and wanted to share my personal new favorite. Check out the recipe below.
1 cup dry oatmeal
1 tsp. cinnamon
2 tbsp. honey or 100% maple syrup
½ cup peanut butter
½ cup almond butter
1/3 cup chopped walnuts
1/3 cup chopped almonds
3 tbsp. chia seeds
3 tbsp. hemp seeds
1/8 cup chopped figs
1. Add oatmeal to a medium bowl, then nut butters. Roughly chop walnuts, almonds and dates.
2. Add nuts, seeds, cinnamon and honey or syrup and mix well with a spoon.
3. Roll into balls and place on parchment paper. Refrigerate and store in a medium container. (you can freeze extra for later use if preferred in Ziploc bags).
