cashew ‘cookie’ energy bites


We can all use a little more energy in our day… Instead of reaching for another cup of coffee or cookie, choose a smart snack! By picking a treat that is a good source of protein + fiber + healthy fat, you will ensure stable blood sugar levels that will keep energy steady and prevent a blood sugar crash.

This cashew energy bites are similar to lara bars; instead of using just dried fruit and nuts, I added hemp protein, maca, and raw honey for additional raw energy and superfood nutrition.

Make a batch of these sweet treats and keep a few on hand throughout your day to combat an energy dip. Also makes a great post workout snack.

Cashew ‘Cookie’ Energy Bites


1 cup pitted dates
1 ½ cups cashews
2 teaspoons maca powder
¼ cup hemp powder
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon raw honey
¼ teaspoon sea salt
¼ cup hemp seeds


Add dates, cashews, maca and ¼ cup hemp powder to food processor; pulse until combined.

Add vanilla, honey and salt, pulsing until mixture forms a big ball.

Place hemp seeds on a dish. Roll date mixture into 1-inch balls, and roll them in the hemp seeds to coat.

  2. Amanda these look delicious–to me. Maryjane hates cashews. I may try a few batches w/ macademia, pistachios, or pecans. ANy other suggestions?

  3. I can’t wait to make these! I love larabars and the price can really add up, so these look perfect and with added health benefits. Thank you!
