After heading to the library
to find Ella Woodward’s first book (based on her blog, deliciouslyella.com), I made these energy bites from the get-go.
And I quote, from the recipe on page 72 …
These are based on one of the most popular recipes from my blog. I’ve been making them almost every week for the last few years and the’ve done wonders to keep my energy going, even when I’m at my busiest. They’re wonderfully sweet thanks to the dates, while the cacao makes them amazingly chocolaty, and the almonds, almond butter, coconut oil and chia seeds give you all the goodness you need to stay energized. They last for ages, so you can make big batches and store them in the fridge so that you aways have a sweet snack on hand. Plus, they travel well, so you can take them to work with you too.
The thing about going plant-based, especially if you’re athletic, is that you’re going to need calories, and you’re going to need fat.
