Energy bites are the real deal friends – They are the perfect snack to hold you over to next next meal, or intra activity bite when you need a little extra boost to keep you going, they are cheap to make and pretty hard to mess up!

My energy bites usually are a result of an upcoming event or in this case road trip and contain whatever I have in the pantry. Forming this recipe actually came as a bit of of challenge for me as I usually just throw ingredients in and hit the blend button – this time I took the time to measure out all of the ingredients because they needed to be shared!

I’ve really taken an interest in ways to boost adrenal functions and energy, mostly because of my own issues with hormone function and after reading about the benefits of Ashwagandha Root Powder, I decided to order a bag.

Ashwagandha is a powerful Ayurvedic healing herb. It is an adaptogen, which means it helps the body respond to stress and changing environment. Some of the benefits include:

Adrenal Function Support

Hormone Balancing

Boosts Energy

Improves Mood; Helps with Stress and Anxiety

Brain Health

Libido

It does however have a somewhat bitter taste and I was curious as to how I would mask the taste. Nothing a little (but is it ever a little?) nut butter can’t handle! Another great thing about energy bites – the flavour can be as simple or complex as the ingredients you choose and that Stevia Sweetened Chocolate just brings your plain old energy ball to a whole new level.

These bites are super filling too and make more than enough to share with friends in the park, on a hike, or quickly grabbed for a mid afternoon hold over to dinner.
