Thin Mint flavored energy bites for your kiddos or any adults that needs a little pick me up during the day.
I pulled together a batch of these energy bites for the kiddos this weekend. A quick and easy recipe that anyone, and I mean anyone, can do. I used a basic recipe I found on Pinterest and then changed it up for us with the things we like and can eat. Basically, you can make changes to these recipes based on you and your family. We don’t do nuts here (I am now allergic) and we don’t do dairy. I took out hemp seeds and added carob chips instead, you could put in a number of different seeds and goodies as you see fit.
1 1/2 cup dates
1/2 cup oatmeal
1/4 cup cocoa
1 tsp peppermint extract
1/4 cup carob chips
Add ingredients to your food processor, pulse to start the blending. Once the dates have started blending in it will start to seem crumbly, continue processing, everything will start to pull together and when it is all pulling from the sides stop the processor and pinch a bit between your fingers. If it holds together nicely, you are ready to roll. Roll into 1″ balls. Chill. Enjoy.
