Banana Bread Energy Bites
Enjoy a few hearty, vegan snack bites when hunger strikes. They're also great for breakfast alongside a protein-packed smoothie or bowl of yogurt. Although the ingredient list is short, they're delicious and flavorful. The banana provides the perfect amount of sweetness without overpowering the entire recipe.
- 1 ripe banana
- 1 cup raw cashews
- 1 cup unsweetened, shredded coconut
- 1 cup quick rolled oats (gluten-free if necessary)
- 1 heaping tablespoon drippy almond butter
- 2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- pinch of salt
In a food processor, add your banana, cashews, and shredded coconut. Pulse until evenly combined (30 seconds - 1 minute). Scrape down the sides if necessary.
Add in the rest of the ingredients. Pulse. The mixture should form into a ball, but if it is too dry, slowly add in 1-2 tbsp of warm water.
Scoop out spoonfuls of the dough (1-2 tbsp each) and roll into balls. Place in the fridge, covered, for 30 minutes. Dig in!
These will last for up to a week in the fridge, but they can be eaten at room temperature. Feel free to grab a ball or two on your way out the door.
