Chocolate and Cherry Energy Bites
Recipe type: Energy Bars / Bites
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 20 bites
Dark chocolate and cherry energy bites - no bake, and only seven ingredients, they are deliciously chewy, sticky and sweet!
  • ½ cup (130g) cashew butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 teaspoons coconut oil
  • ⅓ cup (100g) honey
  • ½ cup (70g) dark chocolate (plus more to decorate)
  • ⅓ cup (50g) dried cherries, chopped
  • 1 and ¾ cups (155g) rolled oats
  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a large, microwave safe bowl, combine the cashew butter, vanilla, coconut oil, honey and dark chocolate. Microwave on short (5-10 second) blasts, stirring each time until the mixture is smooth and glossy and the chocolate is melted.
  3. Add the chopped dried cherries and rolled oats, and stir well to combine.
  4. Divide equally - I used my tablespoon measure to make 20 bites. If desired, melt a little extra dark chocolate and using a fork, drizzle over the bites to decorate them.
  5. The energy bites can be stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to a week. They can also be frozen, just allow to defrost for a few minutes before eating.
