No-Bake Raspberry & Dark Chocolate Energy Bites

Let’s take a closer look at the ingredients…

Raspberries are rich in antioxidants, including vitamin C, and anti-inflammatory phytonutrients. They are also high in fiber.

Cashews are one of the healthiest nuts on earth. They are high in healthy fats, protein-rich, and a great source of minerals including vitamin K, cooper, and magnesium.

Dates may be best known for their chewy texture and extra sweet taste, but they pack in the nutrition too! In addition to being high in fiber and antioxidant-rich, the natural sugar (fructose) and carbohydrates in dates can provide an energy boost.

Oats may be best known for keeping energy levels up and hunger down. They’re a good source of whole grains and contain fiber, B vitamins, vitamin E, healthy fats, and antioxidants. And did you know that oats are gluten-free?

Dark Chocolate is the chocolate to reach for! It contains less sugar than milk chocolate but is rich in antioxidants. It also provides a small hit of caffeine. In limited quantities, dark chocolate can be a healthy treat.
