Walnut Coconut Date Energy Bites

An energy bite that doesn’t use peanut butter. Today’s version is a walnut coconut date energy bite with buckwheat, almond butter and chia seeds. It even passed the hubs’ approval test (probably because it didn’t have pb). We are back to eating normally, though we have majorly cut down on sweets and carbs. I miss bread. Some of you guys had a few good dieting ideas for me and I’m keeping them in the back of my mind to use at a later date. I’m always amazed by how many different dieting options there are out there. If you’re wondering about my sporadic posting this week, I’m finally getting over a nasty respiratory virus I have had since last Thursday. It hasn’t been fun and after feeling sick and extremely fatigued every day for the last 7 days, I’m excited to finally be back on my feet. I lost my sense of taste and smell (thus my lack of recipe posts this week) but now that I’ve regained my senses, things should be back to normal next week. Hopefully no one else has caught this horrible bug. If you have the misfortune of getting it, stay hydrated on tea and water, take a lot of Airborne, SLEEP and try to minimize your germ spread. Happy Thursday!

  1. It’s times like these I really hate my nut allergy! These look so tasty, and I’ve been desperately looking for something that can give me a little energy throughout the day. Are there any other snacks you’d recommend for a afternoon pick-me-up?! PS- love that marbled cheeseboard!

    1. I actually thought of you when I posted these because I always remember your nut allergy! Remind me again – can you do peanut butter/peanuts? I know since peanuts are a legume, some people react different to them than other nuts. If you happen to be able to do peanut butter, you can sub in peanut butter and peanuts for the nuts I use. If not, you could try subbing in pumpkin seeds and pumpkin seed butter in place of the almond butter and walnuts. I haven’t tried pumpkin seed butter yet but it’s on my list of things to try!

      1. Unfortunately, I can’t do peanuts either. They’re not as dangerous as tree nuts, but I still avoid them! I can do pumpkin, so I should give that a try! Thanks for the ideas, Grace!

  2. I could use one (or 4) of these right now! We love having energy bites in place of cookies as a healthy “treat”. And I’m always looking for new flavors to make so I’ll definitely have to try these out!
