Strawberry and Chocolate Covered Strawberry Energy Bites

Who doesn’t like chocolate covered strawberries? This new spin is a nice alternative to the classic decadent treat. It doesn’t have to be Valentine’s Day to enjoy a treat or two, just pop a couple of these bites dipped in cocoa powder to power through your day.

If you don’t care for chocolate, you can opt for the plain strawberry bite which is just as tasty. If you want to add a little extra sweetness, you can dip yours in shredded coconut or powdered sugar.

Strawberry and Chocolate Covered Strawberry Energy Bites

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Energy Bites

Ingredients

  • ½ cup quick cook steel-cut oats (Almond flour will also work.)
  • ½ cup chocolate protein powder
  • ¼ cup vital protein collagen peptides
  • 1 cup strawberries, diced
  • ½ cup chocolate covered almonds
  • 10 pitted dates
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp. coconut oil
  • 1 Tbsp. honey
  • Dark chocolate Hershey’s Cocoa Powder (for dipping)

Instructions

  1. In a food processor or high-speed blender, combine the oats, protein powder, collagen peptides and almonds. This will help as a base to bind the rest of your ingredients together.
  2. Add the strawberries, dates, vanilla extract and honey to the oat mixture and blend until a wet dough starts to form. If the dough is too dry you can add the coconut oil little by little until you reach your desired consistency.
  3. Use a tablespoon or ice cream scoop to measure the amount of dough needed for the balls. Then roll the dough around in your palms until a round ball is formed.
  4. Place on a baking sheet and refrigerate for an hour.
  5. Remove the refrigerated bites and dip one side in the cocoa powder.

Well hello there, I’m Lauren and I love food! Keeping meals simple, satisfying and accessible to all is the main purpose behind my cooking, but I always add a touch of creativity and uniqueness.I’m a family-taught cook and food is one of my greatest passion in life, but I suppose there is a little more to me than just food. I am a fur-mama to two wonderful rescue pups, Herbie and Nelly and our cat Grayson, who are all part of The Bite Size Pantry household. They love to be with me in the kitchen and they make the cleanup process a whole lot easier. Thanks to the wonderful internet world I’ve been able to pursue my dream of cooking. Sometimes it seems like a lot, but I just love food and I really love sharing that love with others who love it too.
