I like to eat energy bites as a snack when I’m on the way to class or travelling. I like to have them in my bag prepared, so that I don’t have to buy unhealthy stuff when I’m hungry and not at home. In Germany you can buy them in many stores, that’s why I was not preparing them on my own. But in Istanbul they’re hard to find. So I was forced to prepare them and I realized how easy it is. I found a great recipe on a German blog I am following and I modified it a bit.
- 150 g sun-dried apricots
- 75 g desiccated coconut
- Soak the apricots in warm water for about two hours.
- Pour off the water and squeeze the apricots. Blend the apricots in a food processor, then add half of the desiccated coconut and blend again.
- Take small portions of the mixture and roll them with your hands. Turn the balls in the left over coconut.
- Keep the energy bites in the fridge.
The recipe is so simple and you only need two ingredients and yet the energy bites are so tasty! I tried the recipe for the first time on my boyfriends birthday. Instead of baking a cake [yes I’m a bad baker, but our kitchen is also bad equiped for baking 😉 ] I decided to prepare these energy bites and get some cute cupcakes. It worked out really well, he loved the energy bites! Here a picture from the birthday table and the first bunch of energy bites I prepared ❤
