Easy as 1,2,3.... Energy Bites!!!

Happy Hump Day everyone! I wanted to share with you all the easiest recipe ever! Is it even legal to call this a recipe when all you do is dump 3 ingredients into a food processor and push go?! Luckily they look way more difficult to make then they actually are! So, my suggestion is when you share these blissful bites with all your friends, you can tell them you've been slaving away in the kitchen all day and that they owe you big time!;) haha just kidding! Share the recipe and let's all get healthy together! This is just the basic bite that I made but I've been playing around with tons of variations so stay tuned for more bites! Scroll down for recipe! :)





These bites are sooo good and soooo good for you! They are raw, gluten free, vegan, vegetarian and filled with vitamins, minerals and nutrients! 

Gluten Free Organic Oats are an excellent source of fiber, omega-3 and iron! They are low in fat and have high levels of protein. Oats have been shown to to help boost your immune system and clear skin! If you have allergies to gluten make sure you get gluten free oats. I always buy GF because I have a very sensitive stomach. 

Almonds...where do I even start? I could have written my college thesis on almonds! Almonds are filled with Manganese, copper and Riboflavin..aka..they give you energy!!! Who doesn't need more of that?! They have also been proven to lower your risk for weight gain, help prevent gallstones, lower cholesterol, and protect against diabetes, cardiovascular and heart disease! The also are an amazing antioxidant! I'll just stop now...I could go on forever!

Dates are a good source of energy, sugar and fiber. Calcium, iron, phosphorus, sodium, potassium, magnesium, and copper are all found in dates! They also contain thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, folate, vitamin A and K. So, your probably like cool Coco...what does that mean? It means the benefits of eating dates include relief from constipation, intestinal disorders, heart problems, anemia, sexual dysfunction, bone health and strength and balance the nervous system and keep your heart healthy. They also give you a huge kick of energy! 

Combing these 3 ingredients make for a killer energy bite snack or rawnola crumble to top on your favorite yogurt, smoothie or fruit.

ENERGY BITE RECIPE
