A healthy holiday spin on healthy no bake energy bites!

Peppermint Fudge No Bake Energy Bites Recipe - healthy festive bites of chocolate fun!/ Running in a Skirt

Hiiiii guys!!!

I’m busting out the peppermint today and I could not be happier!  Tis the season after all!

Every year I struggle with finding the right balance of sharing fun holiday treats, but also keeping them mostly healthy.  I know we all fight the battle of having ten million un-healthy options around us everyday, but it is especially hard this time of year.

My Peppermint Fudge No Bake Energy Bite recipe is a so guilty indulgence you can really feel good about.

The body of the bite is made of almonds and dates.  It’s an unlikely but yummy combination that brings a big nutritional boost to these festive finds.

It’s filled out and help together by coconut oil and flavored with chocolate, vanilla and just a touch of peppermint.

The candy crumbles are more of a garnish than anything, but they sure are fun.  (I was covered in them when I was taking these pictures!)

I’m not against eating full fat and fabulous desserts a few times around the holidays, but these will hold you over in between helpings of the real deal.

I’ve got to tell you though, all this peppermint is making me want to turn on Elf and watch it on repeat all weekend?  Who’s in?

    I JUST got a bag of dates. So many recipes call for them, but I’ve never tried them before. I know, how dare I. I actually just got done watching Elf 🙂 It’s such a good movie! These look delicious. Can you send some my way 😉

    Mmmmm! Chocolate and peppermint is my favorite festive combo! I’m leery of splenda, but I’ll admit to enjoying more than a couple of Starbucks’ new Skinny Peppermint Mocha already this year… so good! I’m super excited about your party dress post tomorrow–this year our calendar is FULL of parties…bring it on!

  18. Chocolate and peppermint is one of my favorite combos ever! I am adding these to our Christmas treat list for sure!
    I try to healthify some of our Christmas treats, but others I leave alone. Tradition and all, you know!

    I’m with you–I do both. Because otherwise, what is the point! And peppermint is such a great mood lifter. If only everyone in the world had peppermint…
