Meal Monday: Chocolate Cherry Energy Bites

We love a good no-bake energy bite cookie in this house. I have a peanut butter & chocolate chip one that I've made a few times, but this time I decided to try something different with the dried cherries I got at my group run on Saturday.

I give you Chocolate Cherry Energy Bites

1/2 cup almond butter
1/3 cup honey
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup coconut
1/4 cup wheat germ
2 tsp vanilla
Pinch of sea salt
1/2 cup dried cherries roughly chopped



1. Heat almond butter & honey together over low heat until blended & liquidy.
2. Remove from heat. Add cocoa, vanilla & salt. Stir until well combined.



3. Stir in oats, coconut, wheat germ & cherries.



4. Put in the fridge for a bit to cool. Then use a teaspoon to scoop dough & roll into 1 inch balls. Makes about 2 dozen.




Looks ugly but tastes pretty good. A nice change from the usual recipe.
