You know how sometimes you only grow/learn/discover when you’re really forced to? When you’re in a corner and the only way to get out is by just figuring out how to deal? That’s how these no bake energy bites came to be. Back in December, I made myself the guinea pig for the 21 Day Vegetarian Reset, my nutrition program that cuts out all grains, dairy, and sugar. Sugar! As a self-professed sugar-addict, this one was quite hard for me, and after two weeks I was staunchly in a sugar-free corner, craving sweets constantly and nearly giving into the temptation of all the tasty Dutch treats I’m still discovering here in Holland. But then I discovered the magically deliciously sweetening power of dates and my world was changed.

To make these no bake energy bites you’re essentially just going to grind the nuts into coarse crumbs in a food processor, then throw in the rest of the ingredients. The dates and dried cranberries help to make the dough stick well together, and also give it a deliciously sweet flavor! We’ll finish it off with lemon zest, vanilla, and sea salt to make these bites absolutely addictive.

    I love cranberries and these look really easy! Is there anything special about the almonds? I’ve never liked them and am wondering if I sub them for more cashews. Thanks!

      Hey there! The almonds are just in there for variation in taste and texture. Though I haven’t tried it, you should be able to substitute cashews without a problem 🙂
