Peppermint Energy Bites
Get ready to work with your hands. Consider this multitasking by forcing yourself to relax, unwind and make something healthy and delicious. I love spending time in the kitchen with my kids and getting them involved in making these. With no baking necessary, they can even make them on their own.
1 cup walnuts
1/3 cup cocoa powder OR cacao powder
1 tsp peppermint extract/flavor
1/8 tsp sea salt
1 /3 cup pitted medjool dates
2 Tbsp water or milk of your choice
1 tbsp ground flax seed (flax meal)
1/3 cup shredded coconut (with extra to roll bites in)
Pulse walnuts in a food processor.
Add dates until mixed well.
Add the remainder of the ingredients.
Roll to form 1 inch balls, (optional to dip gently in extra shredded coconut for a beautiful finish).
Place on parchment paper in the freezer.
Freeze. Then, move to a smaller container and store in freezer until you are ready to devour.
