Energy bites make the perfect on-the-go breakfast, snack, or even pre and post-workout snack. Really you could eat these any time! The dates inside help to give a great natural sweetness and adds to the fiber.

1 cup Medjool dates, pitted
½ cup nut butter
¼ cup rolled or old fashioned oats*
2 tablespoons ground flax, hemp or chia seeds
pinch of salt
¼ cup mini chocolate chips or to taste

Mix all ingredients together in a food processor and then mix in chocolate chips by hand.
Form into balls.
Store for up to one week in the fridge or one month or longer in the freezer.
You can also press the mixture into a square baking dish lined with parchment paper.
Chill for at least two hours in the fridge or shorter in the freezer, remove the paper, cut into bars, and store.
*Make oat flour: Blend in a blender into oat flour before mixing for a smoother texture
*Nut-Free: Use granola or cookie butter
*FODMAP Swaps: Use ½ cup maple syrup instead of dates or use a proportion of maple syrup to dates (2:1) and increase as tolerated, may need to add more oats to make more dense
