Coconut Pecan Energy Bites

I know I’ve mentioned it before, I’m hungry – hence the food blogging hobby🤷🏻‍♀️.  I love prepping healthy little snacks to keep in the fridge and take on the go for those times when I’m ready to eat my arm off.  These Coconut Pecan Energy Bites are naturally sweetened little balls of wholesome ingredients.  They are easy to store, travel well, and most importantly – taste good!

You’ll need a food processor to make these.  I’ve never tried these in a blender, but if you have a high powered one, it *should work.  Start with processing the dates, then you pretty much throw everything else in and whirl away.  When the mixture comes together, it will form a ball.  Pinch a small amount of the mixture in between your fingers and see if it will stick together nicely.  If it’s too wet, add more oats or pecans.  If it seems too dry, add about a tablespoon of water.  Process again.  When it’s a good consistency, remove the mixture from the bowl of the food processor – be careful of the blade.  Let the mixture chill in the fridge for about 30 minutes, covered.  After the mixture has chilled, roll into balls.  I did about 1.5 tablespoons of mixture per serving and got 16 balls.  Roll each ball in unsweetened shredded coconut.  Store in the fridge in an airtight container for about a week.  Or, for longer storage, freeze in a ziplock bag or freezer safe container.  Enjoy 🙂
