This ridiculously simple recipe has been my fudge-y little secret for the past couple months.
I've been making my own energy bars and balls for over a year now, and my standard recipe was a Lara-bar style combo of dates and cashews. But I don't always need all the extra sugar from the dried fruit, so one day I decided to experiment with a new recipe and it turned out so amazing! One of those "holy crap this actually worked" moments. And these little energy bites have been a staple in my diet ever since.
They're perfect for some pre-workout energy, or if you're craving something chocolatey after lunch or dinner!
The main ingredient is Shakeology, which is a dehydrated superfood powder you can learn more about here. It's supposed to be blended into a smoothie, but I like eating it in solid form too!
(When you're "cooking" with Shakeology, just make sure you don't heat it, because heat destroys the live enzymes and other good stuff inside.)
3 Ingredient Fudge Brownie Energy Bites
Makes 12-15 bites
+ 1 cup cashews
+ 1 cup raw old fashioned oats
+ 3 scoops or packets Chocolate Shakeology (contact me to order or try samples!)
(+ ~1/3 cup water)
Add all ingredients to a food processor and blitz for about 1 minute, until the cashews and oats are pulverized.
While the processor is running, SLOWLY add water, 1 tablespoon at a time, until the mixture is the consistency of cookie dough.
Roll the dough into golf sized balls or press into a baking dish to make bars, and store in the refrigerator!
(Serving size: 2-3 balls = 1/2 yellow + 1/2 blue on the 21 Day Fix!)
