These no-bake energy bites are filling a packed with coconut lime flavor. With less than ten ingredients and less than 30 minutes, you can make a delicious and filling bite-sized vegan snack!
Oh hey little coconut lime energy balls of goodness. I know I’m like a hundred years late to the energy bite party, but I must say I get the hype. These little snacks are the perfect vegan and gluten-free treat and they are LIT. Lime and coconut is the perfect mini marriage and I could devour this flavor combo forever. Citrus fruits, including lime, are in season in Winter, so the timing couldn’t be more perfect. Besides lime and coconut, this recipe has lots of nutritious things going on. I’m talking rolled oats, chia seeds, and cashew butter to name a few. Now it’s time to get your snacking on and make these cuties.
Are energy bites healthy?
I feel like the term energy bites have gained popularity in the past few years and with a name like “energy bites” they gotta be healthy right? Well, it depends. Some energy bite recipes are really high in fats and sugars, making them not the healthiest option out there. However, the plus side of making your own food is being in control of how much of each ingredient you use. Watching your sugar intake? No problem – just lessen the amount of sugar. This energy bites recipe is very forgiving!
Tip: Once I make a batch of energy bites, I like to keep them in the fridge and take a couple with me on the go. They will last a week or two (although they’ve never lasted that long in my fridge!) These would store great in the freezer too for up to six months.
I personally like eating a few of these before I work out because it’s the perfect amount of substance that will keep me going (I see where they get the name “energy bites” from now – faceee palm). Basically, they make a great snack or a perfectly portioned dessert if you are trying to curb that nagging sweet tooth. I’m the type of person who needs to have a snack every couple hours (who would have thought a food blogger would have food on their mind so much?) but I try to consume healthy snacks as much as possible. Once you start to incorporate more whole foods into your diet, you will start to eliminate processed foods which is key to a healthier lifestyle.
