A healthy holiday spin on healthy no bake energy bites!
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?
