Cherry Vanilla Energy Bites are a delicious and energizing mid-morning or early-afternoon snack.
We all have a favorite snack that we reach for over and over again when hunger strikes between meals. I like to pair protein and healthy fat for longer-lasting satisfaction, and sometimes I just need a sweet treat.I make a lot of dried fruit and nut energy ball-type things because they’re a real favorite of mine. It started out with my Coconut Walnut Date Bites, which have a pretty classic flavor profile (but they’re also delicious if you switch things up a little and add about ¾ teaspoon ground cinnamon!). My fudgy Vegan No-Bake Chocolate Brownie Bite Truffles are perfect if you’re craving chocolate, but still want to eat clean. The great things about these treats is that you can whip up a batch and stash it in the fridge for anytime you need a quick bite.
There is something so enticing about the cherry + vanilla flavor pairing, and that’s what shines through in this recipe. I used walnuts as my nut base because they’re delicious with cherries and full of healthy fats; pecans would also be a good choice.
