BOP Energy Bites

I am an esthetician and often don’t have time to eat in between appointments. Creating this recipe allowed me to combine healthy foods with cacao nibs which I dearly love to use in any recipe as the health benefits are phenomenal!

Original recipe makes 26 energy bites


1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
1/2 cup ground flax seed
1/2 cup almond butter
1/2 cup ground cocoa nibs
1/2 cup unsweetened flaked coconut
1/2 cup agave nectar, or to taste
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon sea salt

  1. Mix oats, flax seed, almond butter, cocoa nibs, coconut, agave nectar, vanilla extract, and salt in a bowl until evenly moistened. Refrigerate for mixture to slightly solidify, about 30 minutes. Roll mixture into 1-inch balls and arrange in 1 layer in a container; top first layer with waxed paper and arrange a second layer of energy bites atop waxed paper. Continue layering as needed; refrigerate.
