Easy Energy Bites


Easy Energy Bites!

One of the greatest things about living what we call a Shaklee Lifestyle is all the awesome people we have met over the years. For example meet Suni Ferrer, one of my Shaklee Sisters and a fellow Shaklee Mom. 
Thanks for sharing Suni xoxo!

This is a simple recipe that is sure to please every member of the family, plus it's perfect for our 5 day mini diet reset programs.

Easy Energy Bites, by Suni

(A gluten-free, dairy-free, and whole-food energy bar with endless possible fruit and nut combinations.)
*Makes 4 snack servings (or about 32 energy bites) 
*Each “energy bite” has only 20 calories!

2 scoops Shaklee 180 Smoothee Mix (or any Shaklee protein powder)
½ cup raw pumpkin seeds or pecans or any nuts/seeds
½ cup dried cherries or other dried fruit (avoid those with sulfites)
Pinch of sea salt
¼ tsp pure vanilla extract
Optional: 1 Tbsp chia seeds or ground flax seeds (for Omega-3s)

To reduce fat, choose a nut lower in fat, such as almonds or cashews. 

Note: If using a food processor instead of a high-speed blender, you may need to add a small amount of grapeseed oil or melted coconut oil, so the bars hold up without crumbling.

Directions: 
1. Add all ingredients and run food processor or high-speed blender until desired texture is reached, about 30-40 seconds on Speed 1 with Vitamix or Blendtec. If using food processor, pause to scrape down sides if necessary and run again 30 seconds at a time. (*note, I have made these using my countertop kitchen aid mixing bowl and it was just fine too!)
2. Use spatula to scrape and dump fruit/nut blend onto plastic wrap or parchment paper and fold plastic or paper over mixture. 
3. Press the mixture with hands or roller into a thin rectangle. 
4. With knife or pizza cutter, cut into 4 bars or 32 bite-size squares. 5. Eat as is or refrigerate to harden if desired.

Have a great day!
