Fig and Cherry Energy Bites
Fig and Cherry Energy Bites are a perfect snack to add to your lunch for work, before the gym or anytime hunger might strike! With all natural ingredients these energy bites are a terrific alternative to processed energy bars!
- 2 cups old fashion oats
- ⅓ cup honey
- ⅓ cup almond butter
- ¼ cup figs, chopped
- ¼ cup dried cherries, chopped
- ¼ cup almonds, chopped
- ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
First chop figs, cherries and almonds. You will need to remove the small stem from the figs and chop into smaller pieces.
Add all chopped nuts, dried fruit and old-fashion oats, to a bowl.
In another small microwaveable bowl mix together honey, almond butter and cinnamon. Microwave for 20 seconds to get mixture very runny to stir in well with dry ingredients.
Pour honey mixture over oats and use a spatula to mix together ingredients.
Get your hands a little sticky and start forming small ping pong sized balls with your hands. *I’ve found damp hands work best.
Once energy bites are formed (you will get 12-15 depending on size) store in air tight container on counter for 5-7 days. Or freeze them for up to 3 months.
