LOADED WITH FIBER, PROTEIN, & MORE!

The ingredients in these Energy Bites are loaded with health benefits and lots of fiber and protein, which help to give you energy.  Protein is a macronutrient that is metabolised into energy for the body and helps to repair and build tissue.  Soluble Fiber thickens when digested to slow gastric dumping and help to maintain energy. 

Here are some of the ingredients that really pack a punch!

  • Chia Seeds may only have become popular in the US in recent years, but they were a staple and treasured part of the ancient Mayan diet.  The word Chia in Mayan means strength!  They are low in calories but absolutely packed with nutrients and health benefits!  They have Soluble Fiber, Protein, Calcium, Antioxidants, Magnesium.  The benefits from Chia Seeds are huge!

  • Flax seeds are another good source of Fiber, Protein, Calcium, and Omega-3 Fatty acids.  If you are not eating fish, then Flax seeds are a great alternative source for omega-3s!  See more on the health benefits of flax seeds.
  • Oats are another AMAZING source of nutrition with tons of protein, fiber, plus Manganese, Magnesium, Iron, Zinc, Folate, and Vitamins B1 and B5 – wow!  Check out all of the health benefits of Oats!
  • Sunflower Seed Butter (or Sunbutter!) is also a great source of protein and healthy fats, but here we also get Vitamin E, which is super antioxidant and is great for helping to balance cholesterol and boosting immunity.  Read more on the health benefits of Sunflower Seed Butter here.  You could certainly substitute with peanut butter or almond butter, but I swear you will get the same delicious nutty flavor.  Also, with so many nut allergies, I love this Sunflower Seed Butter option for the kids to take to school.  
  • The other ingredients in these No Bake Energy Bites are: Shredded Coconut, Rice Cereal, Chocolate Chips, Virgin Coconut oil, Honey, and Vanilla Extract.

MAKE YOUR NUT-FREE, NO-BAKE ENERGY BITES

This recipe seriously could not be any easier to make!  The only 2 prep steps to do is first to blend the oats in a mini food processor to break them up a bit. 

Second, if your coconut oil is in a solid state (unless warm, it most likely is), Then warm it up in the microwave for about 20 seconds or so to melt it to liquid.  The coconut oil will help the energy bites firm up as it cools and turns back to a solid in the mixture. 

Then you simply measure out all of the dry ingredients into a large bowl.  Then all of the wet ingredients into a smaller bowl.

Every year we go to my husband’s family for Thanksgiving in Maryland.  Therefore, I contribute 1-2 recipes, but I’m not the one in charge of the full Turkey Dinner.  This year, I decided to make Cheddar Honey Cornbread!  I love cornbread, but usually don’t eat it because it is not gluten free and I save my gluten intake for the stuffing!  So, this recipe is my contribution.  It’s a warm, comforting, scrumptious must-make recipe this Fall and Winter!

MAKE YOUR CHEDDAR HONEY CORNBREAD

For this recipe, I used a 9×9 Pan.  You could certainly use a round pan as well or even a muffin pan. I also recommend using parchment paper to line the pan, as it makes it so easy to remove the cornbread when it’s cooked.

Making this cornbread follows the typical dry-ingredient bowl and wet ingredient bowl instructions.  Combine them and then fold in the shredded cheese.

Pour the cornbread mixture into the parchment paper lined pan.  Spread it evenly with the spatula, but don’t worry that it isn’t smooth on the top as you will love those peaks and valleys when it cooks and as you spread butter or drizzle honey on to eat it.

Then, it’s a quick 20 minute bake in a 400 F degree oven.  Remove and let cool for 15-20 minutes, then ull the cornbread out of the pan using the parchment paper.

I love to break the cornbread apart with my hands as opposed to clean cuts with a knife as I love the rustic look, but of course, cutting allows you to get the exact number of pieces you need, so do what works best!

That’s it!  ENJOY!
