Healthy, No-bake Blueberry Cream Pie Energy Bites {Vegan, Dairy Free & Paleo Friendly}
Makes approx 40 all natural, secretly healthy, creamy, dreamy, blueberry-vanilla infused energy packed bites of deliciousness

Ingredients –

1 cup raw cashews

6 medjool dates*, pits removed

1/2 cup freeze dried blueberries

1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

a pinch of salt flakes

Method –

1 – Place cashews in your food processor/blender and pulse until crumbly, you want there to still be a few bigger chunks to give the bites some nice texture.

2 – Add dates and pules until the mixture starts to come together to form a sticky “dough”.

3 – Add vanilla extract and salt flakes and pulse again to combined.

4 – Lastly add your freeze dried blueberries and pulse until just combined.

5 – Using your hands, roll approx 1 heaping teaspoon of dough into little bite size balls then transfer to an airtight container (or even just a ziplock bag) and store in the fridge until you are ready to devour indulge.

Enjoy xo

If you find your dates are a little dry, try soaking them in warm water for 10 mins prior to blending. Alternately you could add a little water, 1 teaspoon at a time if your “dough” doesn’t seem to be coming together after a minute or two as it should.

    I actually did something similar: I combined half blueberries and half raspberries. Rave reviews for those as well. I’m considering trying it with the Fuji Apples next just because. 🙂

    I cannot find the freeze dried blueberries! I have some in my freezer that I picked and froze myself. Do you think that would work?
    Thanks for sharing this with us!

      Im not sure to be honest I think they may end up being to wet.

      If you have regular dried blueberries (similar raisins/cranberries) that would work better.

      You can order freeze dried blueberries online from iherb.com if you’re interested 🙂

      Let me know how you go

    Hello Emma! These energy bites are making my taste buds go crazy! I often need a little something in the afternoons to keep me going. I don’t want to eat a snack bar because of all the pesky ingredients! This recipe will be perfect for me to keep on hand and pop one or more (hehe)to keep me satiated before dinner. Thanks for the recipe! 🙂
