These Energy Bites are the perfect treat when you need a boost!  They are loaded with healthful fats and protein. So Yummy.  Make a batch, freeze and defrost whenever you feel like it. They are not overly sweet so if you prefer, add a tad more chocolate chips.

-1/2 C. Almonds (roasted or raw, unsalted)

-1/2 C. Cooked Quick Oats

-1 TBSP Chia seeds

-1 TBSP Flaxseed meal 

-2 TBSP Sesame Tahini (Israeli style 100% sesame seeds)

-2 TBSP Honey

-1/2 Tsp. cinnamon 

-1/3 C. Dairy free, semi-sweet Chocolate Chips


-Line a cookie tray with parchment paper . Preheat oven to 375° F.

-In the order listed, add ingredients to a blender (I used my Vitamix). Pulse. You will need to use a spatula to push the mixture onto the blade. It might be a little hard to work with but continue blending until the mixture is all combined and the nuts are well ground.  The texture should be paste-like. 

-Form the mixture into small cookies using a small cookie (ice cream) scooper,  Place in preheated oven for about 15-20 minutes. Remove immediately from the hot tray and let cool.
