Vegan no bake cinnamon bun energy bites are sweet, poppable bites that are perfect for a grab and go snack or breakfast treat! Made with just 5 ingredients, gluten free and naturally sweet.
I seriously feel like I was just exclaiming, “how is it already July?!” and here we are in August. I think because I’m now working full force on getting my certification as a holistic nutrition as well as growing my blog and YouTube channel, I love what I’m doing SO MUCH that the days really do just fly by.
I feel so grateful to be living my passion spreading a healthy, compassionate lifestyle all day, every day. And I know so many of you can relate to being busy, busy, busy! It’s so important that we fuel ourselves in a healthy way, which is where these vegan no bake cinnamon bun energy bites come in.
No bake energy bites are absolutely perfect if you live a super busy, on the go lifestyle, because they require one bowl (your food processor), no baking, and just 5 healthy ingredients you may already have in your kitchen!
The method is simple here. Throw the oats, cinnamon, vanilla extract, almond butter, and dates into the food processor, and blend away. It should come together into a slightly crumbly mixture, and you’ll just pinch off some of the dough and use your hands to roll it into a ball.
The texture might vary slightly depending on the almond butter you use, and the moisture of your dates. If the mixture seems too dry and crumbly, just add a few more dates or a bit more almond butter and blend again, until the texture is to your liking and it holds it’s shape when you roll it into a ball. That’s the nice thing about no bake recipes, you can’t really mess them up!
These vegan no bake cinnamon bun energy bites have the perfect combination of sweet and spiced flavor. Plus, they’ll give you energy rather than a sugar crash! I love these as a quick grab and go breakfast treat. They’re also the perfect mid-afternoon snack to tide you over until dinner time. Fair warning, though, they’re poppable and addicting, in the best way.
Have a happy, healthy day!
