The Grand Opening of our new Cookstown office is upon us, so that means tasty healthy snacks for all. These energy bites are back by popular demand, however I decided to change it up this time choosing an almond theme rather than peanut butter.

These simple, tasty, and nutritious snacks are great for on-the-go, healthy party snacks, or evening craving quenchers. They really pack a punch nutritionally speaking, high in protein, healthy fats and a variety of vitamins and minerals. The ingredients can be varied, as long as the wet to dry ratio remains the same. Change the nuts/seeds, add ground flaxseeds or dried fruit to match your families taste- the beauty of the energy bites!



  • 1 cup almond butter
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 2 tsp cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped almonds



  1. Combine the almond butter, honey, cocoa powder.
  2. Combine the rest of the ingredients into the bowl, mix until evenly blended.
  3. Roll into balls of desired size and place on a cookie sheet. If desired, roll in shredded coconut.
  4. Place in refrigerator for 20 minutes to cool.


Let me know what you think!
