Mmmmm, nut balls. Said no one ever.
I mean, that’s literally what this recipe is: a bunch of nuts ground up and rolled into a spherical form known commonly as a “ball”. Buuuuut we’re also immature and cackled with laughter every time we texted about this recipe. Can you send me a pic of the balls? We figured you would be much less likely to make them/eat them/offer them to guests without a little rebranding.
For the sake of making them sound as appealing as they are, we’ve renamed them energy bites. ENERGY BITES, PEOPLE.

- 1 tsp coconut sugar
- Blend cashews, seeds, almonds, and oats in a Vitamix or other wonder blender until fine but not absolute powder.
