These bites may be tiny, but they’re packed with mighty energy! These chewy delights are a great fuel-filled snack. Tahini and dates are a surprising combo, but they mimic salted caramel flavor so well!
1 1/4 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
1 cup pitted dates soaked in warm water (about 1 hour)
1/2 cup roasted salted cashews
pinch of salt
2 Tbsp tahini
1 tsp vanilla
In a food processor, blend all ingredients (except for oats). Process into a dough (about 1 minute).
Transfer to a mixing bowl and stir in oats.
Refrigerate mixture for about 15 minutes.
Roll into about 1 inch balls (I used a 4 teaspoon cookie scoop to help form my balls).
Refrigerate for 2 to 3 hours, and enjoy!
Yields 15-20 energy bites.
Serving: 4 energy bites (1 serving)
