Coffee Energy Bites – an Ageless Diet™ Recipe

These no bake coffee energy bites are the bomb. Infused with freshly ground coffee, they are sweet, energizing, rich in antioxidants, great post-workout or for a snack later in the day. These little guys are ideal for travel too. I take them with me on the plane, especially on those dreaded 6 AM flights. With a tall espresso and a banana, it’s one of my favorite breakfasts on-the-go.

Ingredients
  1. 1 cup organic rolled oats
  2. 1/2 cup ground flaxseed, hemp seeds or chia seeds
  3. 2 tablespoons freshly ground organic dark roast coffee beans
  4. 3/4 cup creamy almond or peanut butter
  5. 1/4 cup of unfiltered, raw honey (maple or yacón syrup, if vegan)
  6. 1 teaspoon vanilla
  7. 1/4 cup cacao nibs
  8. 1/4 cup dried currants
  9. 1 teaspoon sea salt
Instructions
  1. Stir your oatmeal, flaxseed and/or chia and freshly ground coffee together in a medium bowl until thoroughly mixed.
  2. Add almond butter, honey, sea salt, and vanilla.
  3. Once blended, fold in dried currants and cacao nibs. Thoroughly combine.
  4. Let chill in the refrigerator for 20-25 minutes.
  5. Once chilled, roll into balls or bites about 1 inch in diameter. This recipes should yield about 10-12 balls.
  6. Store in an airtight container and keep refridgerated, for up to 1 week.
Notes
  1. Depending on how big you roll these bites, you can expect to yield over a dozen of them. Last time I made them this recipe yielded 16. I store them in the freezer as a frozen treat, post workout, and because they keep better if I'm taking them with me on the plane.
  2. Do not brew the coffee grounds, you want them dry and freshly ground.
