HEALTH HACKS | The Perfect Energy Snack!
As you may have noticed, I love foods that combine healthy fats, carbs, and protein! These flavorful bites combine dates, peanut butter, honey, and coconut oil!
Dates have anti-inflammatory properties, are great for digestion, boost brain health, and are a great source of ENERGY! Raw honey, also a great source of energy, has anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and anti-fungal properties. Coconut oil can help regulate metabolism, boost your immune system, and can help fight candida (hello post-Halloween candy binge). And peanut butter, because everything is better with peanut butter!
Energy Date Bites
3 cups dates (remove the pits)
1 cup raw cashews
1/4 cup raw, organic honey
3/4 cup organic smooth peanut butter
2 tbsp extra virgin coconut oil
1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
Throw everything except half of the shredded coconut into a food processor or blender. Once combined and smooth, form the mixture into 1/2" balls and roll into the shredded coconut. These are best kept in the refrigerator.
