HEALTH HACKS | The Perfect Energy Snack!

IMG_0527.JPG

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.

DONE. 

ENJOY!
