  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • ½ cup shredded coconut

Instructions

  • Place all of the ingredients for the energy bites in a food processor and pulse until combined.
  • Roll into 16 large or 32 small balls and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  • Melt the white chocolate chips and coconut oil together in a small saucepan over low heat or in the microwave in a glass bowl in 15-seconds intervals until melted and smooth.

Notes

Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
 
Nutrition information is for one energy bite, assuming you made 16 large bites.

To avoid sticky hands

If you find that the dough is sticking to your hands too much while rolling them, dampen your hands slightly before beginning to roll. Just be sure your hands aren't too wet or that could affect the consistency of the dough. You may need to dampen again every few balls. This should help keep your hands cleaner and make it easier to roll.
