Satisfying snacks: Energy Bites

Easter eggs all gone? Try this recipe instead!

Sometimes you need a snack and a piece of fruit or veg stick + dip just isn't going to cut it. This is a great recipe if you are looking for something sweet and satisfying.


  • 120 g fresh pitted dates

  • 1 cup rolled oats

  • 1/2 cup desiccated coconut

  • 1-2 tablespoons cacao nibs 

  • 150 g nut butter (your choice, but I usually use a combination of Tahini and Peanut butter)

  • A little water to mix if needed


  1. Combine dates, oats and coconut into a food processor or blender.

  2. Mix through until the mixture goes crumbly.

  3. Remove the mixture and place into a large bowl.

  4. Add the cacao nibs.

  5. Add the nut butter and mix through until combined.  Add more water if needed to mix into a dough.

  6. Scoop out 12 portions, roll into balls and roll in your choice of chopped nuts, granola or desiccated coconut.

These can be stored in the fridge for up to 7 days. However, I keep a few out then freeze the rest. I like to eat them straight out of the freezer (perhaps that is weird but it's how I enjoy can let me know your thoughts!) Also, I find keeping them in the freezer keeps them out of sight so I don't eat the whole batch in the first day :)
