Coconut Coated No Bake Energy Bites

So kite surfing. It happened. Well, it happened for about 0.02 seconds. The first day of our lessons there was no wind, so we were sent home with dashed hopes and a fierce craving to get our toes wet (literally, we didn’t even touch the water that first day). But on day two, it was like the heavens had opened an unleashed their windy wrath on our little Dutch beach. Every kite surfer for miles was out, making massive jumps and swoosh swooshing around. And there the tulip-man and I were, violently crashing our kite into the ground time and time again. On the last go, he stood up for approximately 1 second, and I for 0.02 seconds, which was success enough for me (until next weekend that is!) And as a reward to myself, I stuffed my face with these Coconut Coated No Bake Energy Bites the whole walk back to the car.

These No Bake Energy Bites are seriously simple. Our spotlight ingredient this week is plums, and we’re taking them to a new level by using their dried version, prunes, as the foundation for these energy bites. We’ll throw in some coarsely ground almonds and chia seeds for healthy fats and proteins, and orange zest for a little zing of citrusy flavor. Roll them in shredded coconut so they’re not sticky (and so they look like snowballs and you can pretend Christmas is closer than it is), and you’re all set!
