I (like most people) love a sweet treat.....and I love nothing more than a sweet treat that is actually good for you.
These blueberry power bites are loaded with all the good stuff (aka fibre, protein, healthy fats, and NO added sugars).
Enjoy these power bites as a mid day snack to get the energy boost you need to power through the rest of your day.
- 10 dates (soaked)
- 1 cup dried Blueberries (soaked)
- 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
- 1/3 cup almond butter (can be any nut or seed butter, use a seed butter to keep it school friendly)
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 3 tbsp. hemp seeds
Place dates and blueberries in a bowl. Fill with warm water and let soak for 30-60 minutes. Drain and mash mixture. The warm water will help soften the dried fruit leaving you with an easy to mix fruit puree.
Mix 1 cup fruit puree with oats, coconut, almond butter and hemp seeds. Mix together well and roll into small balls. Don't be shy....get messy and enjoy! You can even get the little ones involved in rolling these power bites and hopefully tasting them too.
Store refrigerated in an air tight container for up to 1 week!
