Energy bites

Energy bites

I've come up with these as a quick energy source that are stable at room temperature. You can make them double the size of the picture. 3 recipes, 3 different flavours. If you have a small grinder it would be useful, or employ your food processor, it needs to be finely chopped to stick together.
Servings 4 balls

Ingredients
  

Almond

  • 50 g ground almonds
  • 30 g coconut flakes shredded would work, but not dessicated
  • 30 g rice syrup
  • 10 g coconut oil

Pecan

  • 50 g pecans raw
  • 30 g coconut flakes shredded would work, but not dessicated
  • 30 g rice syrup

Coconut

  • 40 g coconut flakes shredded would work, but not dessicated
  • 30 g rice syrup
  • 20 g dextrose
  • 10 g coconut oil

Instructions
 

  • Process/grind the nuts and coconut finely.
  • Put into a small bowl and add the rice syrup and coconut oil (plus the dextrose if making the coconut ones).
  • Microwave for 10 seconds and then mix thoroughly.
  • Mold into balls with your hands, squeezing the mixture together so that it holds its shape.
  • Put into cake cases or wraps of baking parchment. Allow to air dry a bit.

Notes

If you find the pecan or almond aren't sweet enough, add the 20g dextrose as in the coconut ones. Keep in an airtight container.
