Looking for a convenient and nutritious snack to fuel your busy days? Look no further! These Chia Seed and Hemp Seed Energy Bites are the perfect on-the-go solution. Packed with Omega-3s, protein, and wholesome goodness, they'll keep you energized throughout the day. Here's how to make them with sprouted oats:
- 1/2 cup Chia Seeds
- 1/2 cup walnuts
- 1/2 cup sprouted oats
- 2 tablespoons Organic Hemp Seed Oil
- 1 cup pitted dates
- 1/4 cup of your favorite nuts (e.g., almonds, cashews, or pecans)
Prepare Your Ingredients: Start by gathering all the necessary ingredients and measuring them out. If your dates are not already pitted, make sure to remove the pits.
Soften the Dates: Place the pitted dates in a bowl of warm water for about 10 minutes. This will make them softer and easier to blend.
Combine in the Food Processor: In a food processor, add the Chia Seeds, walnuts, sprouted oats, Organic Hemp Seed Oil, the softened dates, and your choice of nuts.
Blend Until Smooth: Process the mixture in the food processor until it reaches a sticky, uniform consistency. You may need to stop and scrape down the sides a few times to ensure everything is well mixed.
Check the Consistency: Once blended, check the mixture's consistency. It should be slightly sticky and able to hold together when pressed. If it's too dry, you can add a teaspoon of water or more Organic Hemp Seed Oil. If it's too wet, add a bit more sprouted oats.
Form the Bites: Take small portions of the mixture and roll them into bite-sized energy balls. You can make them as big or as small as you prefer.
Chill: Place the energy bites on a tray or plate and let them chill in the refrigerator for about 20-30 minutes. This will help them firm up.
Store: Once they're firm, transfer the energy bites to an airtight container. Store them in the fridge for freshness.
Enjoy: Grab these energy bites as a quick, healthy snack whenever you need a boost of energy or a satisfying treat.
These Chia Seed and Hemp Seed Energy Bites made with sprouted oats are not only delicious but also packed with nutrients and Omega-3s. They're perfect for refueling during a busy day, pre- or post-workout, or whenever you're in need of a healthy and satisfying snack. Enjoy!
