These energy bites are great for kids and for your pre and post workouts! Gus would not stop eating them. They have no added sugars and contain chia seeds, a powerhouse of nutrition. Chia seeds contain omega-3 essential fatty acids, antioxidants, protein, calcium, iron, potassium, vitamins A, B, E, and D, as well as other key minerals. Plus, chia seeds absorb about 30 times their weight in water… this can help combat dehydration for kids and athletes alike. These little delights are gluten free, vegan, dairy free, no added sugar
1 cup rolled oats (gluten free in you need them that way)
1/2 cup cocoa powder (divided)
1/4 cup chia seeds
1/3 cup peanut butter
1 lb medjool dates (remove pits)
Add oats and 1/4 cup cocoa powder to food processor and blend to desired oat consistency (I like mine fine). Add the remaining ingredients and process until the dough forms one large ball. Roll the dough into small balls and roll each one in remaining cocoa powder. Refrigerate. Make about 2-4 dozen depending on the size you make.
