I love to carry snacks around. It just gives me peace of mind knowing I’ve got something easily accessible if the situation calls for it. Sometimes that means carrying around an apple, other times I just have to get something shop-bought, but my favourite by far is having something that I made myself. It’s quite satisfying, ya know?
My latest and greatest are these vegan and paleo energy ball bites! One of my biggest pet peeves with homemade energy balls is how they sometimes tend to become super soft and mushy if left out of the fridge out for more than 1 hour – which meant it could never be just tossed into my bag. Hmmf. I remember packing some balls for a plane once only to have them melt and get all soft inside the little bag I was carrying them in. I still ate them anyways, but got sticky all over.
Most recipes either used too much coconut oil / nut butter (not a problem if kept in the fridge), or use mostly dates to make up for it. In this recipe we’re going to use cacao butter! Not only is it solid at room temp, it has a mild flavour and makes it almost feel white-chocolate-y (almost). Win win!
