Energy bites, aka protein bites, cookie dough bites, power balls, whatever term used, they tend to have these things in common: no cooking or baking involved; keep for a long time in the fridge; make perfect on-the-go and travel snacks to keep you going between meals. Fudgy Energy Bites make a great easy chocolatey summer health snack when you don't want to turn the oven on. And, since they taste like a fudgy bite of cookie dough, win-win! These Fudgy Energy Bites are just one version of this snack and they pack 7 grams of protein per ball, plus healthy fats, including Omega-3's from hemp and pumpkin seeds.


I wanted a nut-free, grain-free bite, so used Sun Butter as the base (sunflower seed butter). Many similar recipes rely on dates as the sticky binder and sweetener, but since I'm FODMAP-sensitive, I've developed this recipe to use maple syrup and still achieve a perfect balance of moistness in each bite. Being nut-free makes them school friendly, and being grain-free makes my paleo friends happy. Of course they are vegan, and gluten-free, too.

I used Sun Warrior Vanilla Warrior Blend protein powder, but you can use your favorite protein powder. Let me know what you try and if you made any adjustments in the comments section, below. Enjoy!
