I love to have these in the fridge to enjoy in between meals. It’s a great option to keep me from grabbing a cookie. It keeps me full and it really good for me.   

Let’s talk about the ingredients in Coconut Citrus Energy Bites…

 

 

First you start with Medjool dates. They are so good and naturally sweetened with sugar so this recipe has no sugar added! According to WebMD, Medjool dates are high in fiber and can help you increase the potassium in your diet. Studies have shown they can stimulate the immune system, reduce inflammation, prevent DNA damage, and improve hormone regulation

The B vitamins in Medjool dates like pantothenic acid, folate, and niacin help manage the metabolic processes that convert food to energy. Research shows this can help to fight tiredness and fatigue.

You can find dates in the produce section of your grocery store. Make sure you get the ones that are pitted or remove the pits before you use them in this recipe.

Then you add some Old-fashioned Oats. Did you know that they are one of the healthiest grains on earth? They are gluten-free and some studies show that they can help with weight loss, reduced the risk of heart disease, and lower blood sugar levels. They are full of vitamins, minerals, and fiber.

 

 

Finely shredded unsweet coconut is good for you in moderation. Coconut improves heart health, weight loss, and digestion.

 

 

 

Chia seeds are tiny but packed with goodness-like fiber! Chia seeds contain quercetin, an antioxidant that can reduce your risk of developing different health conditions. I have been reading a lot of good stuff about quercetin – so do some research so you can understand more about it! 

 

 

Zest & juice of 1 orange – I love that this includes the zest and juice of an orange. It gives it a refreshing citrus flavor. But the zest of the orange is not only good for added flavor – it’s really good for you.

According to the Times of India:

The orange peels are rich in fiber, vitamin C, folate, vitamin B6, calcium and other essential nutrients. The skin of the oranges contains a good amount of polyphenols that protect against several diseases. Peels have anti-cancerous properties, due to the presence of limonene, a naturally occurring chemical. The peel has anti-inflammatory properties that boost your immunity power!

 

 

 

Almond butter is a great alternative to peanut butter because it is high in monounsaturated fats. These fats help to lower LDL (“bad”) cholesterol and raise HDL (“good”) cholesterol. It also has Omega-6 fatty acids. 

 

 

Organic Naked Fiber – this stuff is amazing!! It’s an important ingredient in this recipe and you can use it in so many things to help make sure you get your daily fiber! It’s made with just 1 ingredient –  naturally dehydrated pulp of baobab, a fiber-rich fruit from Southern Africa. This superfruit is known for its health benefits, along with being high in dietary fiber, baobab fruit is rich in important vitamins, antioxidants, and natural prebiotics.

It is a naturally sweet and citrusy treat that provides a whopping 18% of your daily fiber needs with each serving. 

Just add a scoop of Organic Naked Fiber to water up to 3 times a day to support gut health, maintain stable energy, and regulate cravings. I like to add a little stevia with the powder and water to make a refreshing and delicious lemonade.

How to make Coconut Citrus Energy Bites (Energy Balls With Dates)

Add the dates to a food processor until it becomes a sticky ball. Then add the rest of the ingredients. I like to slowly add the citrus juice to the mixture until it has the perfect consistency. Then roll it in the extra coconut flakes.

You can also add the coconut flakes to your food processor first to ground them into small pieces. Remove them and add the dates to start the recipe. 

Take these with you on road trips, early soccer games, school pick-up line, and more!
