How to make Healthy Pumpkin Pie Energy Bites
This recipe couldn’t be more simple. First, combine all ingredients except for the coconut in the food processor. Blend until it is almost smooth but still has some texture. The mixture will be thick and may need to be stirred a couple of times to get it combined evenly.
Next, place the mixture in the refrigerator and allow it to cool. This step makes the mixture easier to handle and roll into balls. Then, once the energy bite mixture is more firm, roll into rounded tablespoon-sized balls and roll in coconut. The recipe should yield about 18-20 bites.
Store the energy bites in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 10 days. These could also be frozen for up to 30 days.
