Holiday Bites

Holiday tip: don’t go anywhere starving!

These energy snacks are great to have before going to your holiday events. They are also great to serve for parties to kick the cravings of other sweet treats offered or after a workout/yoga class.  Keep them in your car for a quick energizing snack while traveling throughout the holidays.

Carrot Bites

CARROT CAKE INGREDIENTS:
2  carrots
1 cup raw almonds
1 cup raw walnuts
6  dates
1 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/4 cup oats
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp raw honey
1/4 cup shredded coconut for rolling

Place all ingredients into a high speed blender or food processor. Blend until you see all ingredients are a large crumb size. Roll into any size ball of your choice and display on a fun platter.

Add a chocolate twist:

1/2 cup cacao chips/nibs
1 cup raw almonds
1 cup raw walnuts
6  dates
1 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/4 cup oats
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp raw honey
1/4 cup shredded coconut for rolling

These additional ingredients offer a great nutritional boost to these yummy date balls.  Coconut contains healthy fats and fiber with less sugar and cacao is an excellent source of antioxidants, especially those called “flavonoids.”
