I have to admit that I kind of love Valentine’s Day. All of the red and pink, cute heart decorations, chocolate… But then again, I pretty much love every holiday and any excuse to buy special holiday food, decorations, etc… Anyways, remember those dates (haha) I bought? Well I put them to good use in a easy energy bite recipe. Similar to larabars, but lots cheaper!
Coconut Almond Energy Bites
- 2 cups dates
- 1 cup almonds
- 1/2 cup shredded coconut
- In a food processor blend the dates. Add the almonds and blend. Add the coconut last and blend until the ingredients are evenly mixed.
- Form the mixture into balls, or flatten in a pan and cut into bars or bites. (Or hearts!)
Note: Add chocolate chips for a little extra Valentine’s Day love!
Happy Valentine’s Day!
What are your plans for Valentine’s Day?
