Superfood Snack: Endless Energy Bites!
My favorite recipes involve grabbing a bunch of super nutritious ingredients, throwing them in a bowl and smushing them into bite size pieces...these Endless Energy Bites fit that bill perfectly! Like most people these days, a good proportion of my snacking and meals happen on the go. As a result of this we want to make sure we get as much 'bang for your buck' nutrition as possible, in a way that is easy to digest and accessible to the body.
These Endless Energy Bites are packed full of energy boosting superfoods and are easy to make, easy to grab and go and easy to eat on the run (not literally, thats dangerous)!
Maca: an ancient super food known for increasing energy and stamina, balancing hormones, and is said to help raise libido...
TigerNut Flour: the world's number one source for resistant starch (the food for the good bacteria in our stomachs), tigernut flour is also packed full of vitamins and minerals and has a delicious sweet taste.
Cacao Nibs: Natures chocolate, cacao has the highest concentration of antioxidants than any other known food, raises levels of neurotransmitters such as serotonin and dopamine (that make us feel great) and has gentle levels of caffeine to give us a little boost!
Endless Energy Bites
- 1 ripe avocado
- 1 ripe banana
- 1 cup tigernut flour
- 1 scoop vanilla vegan protein powder
- 2 tablespoons flaxseed
- 2 tablespoons chia seed
- 2 tablespoons shredded coconut
- 1 tablespoon cacao nibs
- 1 tablespoon maca powder
Mash avocado and banana together until smooth (can use a food processor). Add in all the dry ingredients and mix well together (can use a food processor). At this stage I like to refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to help the mixture to solidify, but this step can be skipped if pushed for time. Roll into balls, about 1 heaped teaspoon of mixture per bite. Refrigerate, will keep for about 5 days in the fridge.
