These snack bites are great for quick energy on the go and with the added serving of veggies – you cant beet it!

Feel free to adapt them any way you please! The one thing I will say is the beets are very moist so it is crucial to have oats or almond flour as a base to absorb some of that moisture. Otherwise, these are great with chia seeds, hemp hearts, other kinds of nuts and even peanut butter. Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 1 medium beet (cooked)
  • 3/4 cup pitted dates
  • 1/2 cup peanuts
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/3 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1 t cinnamon
  • 1 T raw cacao powder (optional)

Method

Step 1

1. Combine beets and dates in a food processor until chopped very small. Add all other ingredients one at a time and process until a thick "dough" forms

Step 2

2. Roll into 18 balls, coat with more coconut or dust with cacao powder and pop into the freezer until hardened.

Step 3

3. Enjoy!
