How to Make Them
And this is our favorite part! Most energy bites rely on dates for sweetness and for consistency which means they need to be made in a food processor. These however do not: which means to make them, all you have to do is mix up the ingredients in a bowl! It really is super simple.
Once the ingredients are fully combined, roll them into balls and store!
How to Store Them
Store energy bites in a covered container for up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator. They can also be stored in the freezer for up to 3 months.
They are stable at room temperature, so are perfect safe to be out of the refrigerator for a few days if need be.
