Fruity Nut n’ Honey Energy Bites
Summer is a time for fun, so don’t waste it stressing about snacks! Fruity Nut n’ Honey Energy Bites are a portable, make-ahead snack you can feel good about giving your family. These nutrient dense energy bites are full of fruit, nut butter, seeds, and whole grains!
Servings: 18 bites
- 1 cup cherries, dried
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 cup Honey Nut Cheerios
- 1/3 cup pumpkin seed kernels
- 1/2 cup almond butter
- 1 teaspoon honey
Soak dried cherries in hot water for 10 minutes. Drain and add to a food processor. Add vanilla and pulse until a paste forms (about 1 minute).
Add 1.5 cups of the Honey Nut Cheerios to the food processor and pulse again until the Cheerios are fairly crushed and well mixed in.
In a medium bowl, combine cherry mixture, pepitas (pumpkin seeds), almond butter, honey, and the remaining 1/2 cup of whole Cheerios. Mix well.
Form into small balls, pressing tightly together with palms. If they are not quite sticking together, add just a tiny bit more almond butter.
Store in an air tight container in the fridge for grab-and-go snacking!
