Little bites of chocolatey goodness on the go with these no-bake Chocolate Cashew Energy Bites. The perfect snack on the go that’s also gluten-free and vegan!
At the gym last weekend my fitness instructor paused the class (while everyone was holding planks no less) to ask everyone to do her a favor. She didn’t want each of us to make a fitness resolution for the year, instead it was to make one small change it week. For that moment it was holding your plank longer than usual while she was chatting with us. Maybe it would be try a new class at the gym or try a new machine in the weight room. Whatever worked for you, just implement one small change each week and see the difference that it made.
I really liked this thought. It’s an attainable fitness goal that doesn’t seem so overwhelming and one you can really put towards every aspect in your life.
Want to eat a little healthier? Easy – sub fruit for dessert after dinner one night instead of ice cream. Add an extra vegetable to your dinner plate or maybe skip the chips when you need a snack and go for these energy bites instead.
I 100% fully admit I was skeptical of the energy bites trend for a really long time. I didn’t completely get it but then I did Whole30 again last October and I needed some energy snack to get me through the day while I was out.
This was not it.
Wasn’t the answer you were expecting was it?
No, I went the pre-purchased energy bar route. I liked it but sometimes I felt like it was a little too much at one time. It did the trick for sure when I was fulfilling bake shop orders or working one of the markets but at home sometimes you just want a little bit. . a little pick me up in the afternoon.
That’s exactly where these chocolate cashew energy bites come in. They are small, two bite snacks that take no effort at all to make. They happen to be vegan, gluten free, paleo and Whole30 friendly and you do not have to follow any of those diets to enjoy one for yourself! They totally hit that spot when you’re craving something sweet or a little bit of chocolate without reaching for a chocolate bar too. The best part, it’s comprised of three simple ingredients.
Seems too good to be true isn’t it?
Guess you’ll need to make a batch for yourself to find out!
