If you’re new to energy bites, let me explain them a bit. They’re little bliss balls packed with ingredients that give you great energy, are healthy and they taste amazing. They’re chewy, delicious, and you can make them any flavour that you desire! I’ve made carrot cake energy bites, brownie energy bites and even chocolate peanut butter energy bites.

When I say these bites are good, I mean gooood. They taste like little bites of lemon cakes rolled in coconut heaven. I love that they’re made with totally whole food ingredients and filled with tons of energy, using simple ingredients such as lemon juice, coconut flakes, nuts and dates. That’s all that makes these amazing coconut lemon energy bites. The main sweetener here are dates, which are naturally sweet, chewy and loaded with tons of nutrients, vitamins and minerals such as fibre, vitamin A and vitamin K.

    Hi Jessica, I was wondering what type of food processor you use for things like this? I have an actual “dedicated” food processor (as well as a Vitamix blender) and all too often, unless a recipe uses a LARGE batch of ingredients, most of the material stays under the blades and doesn’t get processed without a LOT of stopping and hand mixing, then starting again. Maybe I need a different food processor than the Braun that I have…?

      Hi Lisa,

      I use a Hamilton Beach food processor which is about 3 years old. It works really well with my energy bites, and a blender would mush this up too much into a paste. I’ve never had to stop to blend it. I hope that helps!!
