Christmas energy bites
What a better way to begin the holiday season than with these Christmas energy bites. These are actually to die for. I recently had a ginger bread bar and thought of making something similar but in energy bite form. I think my version is way better. Less ingredients, no bake, gluten free, dairy free, and still delicious.
I was pleasantly surprise with the flavor of these Christmas energy bites. I wanted to mimic ginger bread flavor so I made my own spice mixture with cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and cardamon.
The base of these energy bites are just dates, unsweetened coconut flakes and walnuts. After obtaining the base you can later add any flavorings of your choice to make them different, like in this case, I used the spices to make them indicative of the holidays.
Christmas season is known to be cookie season. I like to keep my recipes on the healthy side. If you are looking to make some cookies over the holidays I really suggest starting with these or least try them. Not only they are no bake, but also gluten free and dairy free.
For these Christmas energy bites you will need some liquid to made the batter come together. I used Silk Unsweetened Almond Milk for it. I always use unsweetened varieties so that I can control the sweetness plus I really don’t like tasting any sweetness when having a plane glass of it.
I have seen recipes that use maple syrup to bring energy bites together but by using dates there is no point in adding any more sweetness to the recipe. Dates are naturally sweet already.
You can also sign up to receive Silk newsletters for coupons. If you use their products you should take advantage of the many coupons they offer. They have a wide variety of new products so I am sure you will put them to good use.
These Christmas energy bites are something that I will be making again around the holidays to give away to friends and relatives. I think these will be a hit so if you like making your own energy bites and keeping your dessert on a healthier side I highly recommend making these. Very unique and delicious.
