Coconut Chocolate Energy Bites
This recipe was so fun to make! It is absolutely a kid-friendly vegan recipe, and my daughter and I had a ball making it! I wanted to make a quick and easy vegan snack that incorporated some of our favorite ingredients: chocolate and peanut butter. This recipe definitely did the job!
The base of the recipe is pitted dates. This is the perfect consistency after pulsing them in the food processor. Dates are high in vitamins and minerals, they promote digestive health, reduce blood pressure because of the high magnesium content, and studies also show that they boost brain health because of the vitamin B6 content.
Whenever possible, I encourage my daughter to help with my vegan recipes. She loves cooking, and she really liked this recipe. She was able to mold the mixture and be messy! She is also learning about tastes, textures, different ingredients, and how they work together to make a recipe. She was so proud of the finished product. Those teachable moments are priceless!
Rich, chocolatey, coco-nutty, hard-to-eat-just-one, peanut buttery and only five ingredients to make!
