Chocolate Maple Almond Energy Bites
Karen Snow, ND
You’ll notice from previous posts that I’m all about quick and easy food options to support the fast-paced world we live in. That being said, I don’t like to sacrifice flavour, and these little treats will not disappoint. The chocolate-lover in me is fully satisfied with the combination of flavour, nutrition, and ease of this recipe.
We recently hosted a patient appreciation week at the office and of all of the tasty treats, these were definitely the top pick. I personally double the recipe, exerting the same amount of energy as with one batch, and then package individually and freeze for future treat-ing. Give these little bites a try!
1 cup oats
2/3 cup almond butter
½ cup chocolate chips
¼ cup sesame seeds
¼ cup cocoa powder
1 Tbsp chia seeds
¼ cup + 1 Tbsp maple syrup
- Combine all ingredients, mix really well.
- Place in the refrigerator for 30 minutes or until firm.
- Roll into snack sized bites.
