Healthy, Wholesome Super Energy Bites

 

I can't believe August is over!! When did that happen and where did that month go?

Here at Lulu & Boo we’ve been super busy preparing for the next few months, very exciting times ahead! With being so busy, we’ve found a neat little way to keep our energy levels up. We’ve made our own nut-free protein bites that we munch throughout the day!

These nut-free energy bites are crammed full of tasty little gems! Medjool dates, chia, pumpkin and sesame seeds, raw cacao, and cinnamon.

Did you know that cacao offers a great source of magnesium, iron and antioxidants?

Pumpkin seeds are another source of magnesium, along with zinc, which helps to boost your immune system.

Chia seeds are full of fibre and healthy fats.

Medjool dates, are the Kings of all dates, they are also high in fibre, carbohydrates and contain more potassium than bananas!!! They are virtually fat, cholesterol and sodium free! Wow, you go Medjool!

Enough of the super stuff! 

 

Here is how to make them!

  • 10 - 12 large pitted medjool dates
  • 1/4 cup of cacao powder
  • 1/4 cup of sunflower seeds
  • 1/4 cups of sesame seeds
  • 3 tablespoons of chia seeds
  • 2 teaspoons of cinnamon
 *you can add a pinch of salt if you want a little more bite!

 

Method

  • Place the dates in a food processor and blend until they form a paste.
  • Add the dry ingredients in and whizz till they are all broken down and forms a dough like consistency.
  • Place the mixture in a bowl, cover and leave in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  • Then use a tablespoon for measuring the dough, roll into little bitesize balls and place on baking parchment.
  • You can then freeze these and they should keep fresh for up to 3 months!
*We like to separate them into little tubs and then grab one in the morning ready for work!

 

Happy Snacking!!
