These vegan almond butter energy bites are made from just 6 main ingredients and also you don’t need a food processor. Since you do not have to bake them, they come together so fast just like my vegan peanut butter balls, vegan coconut balls, chocolate coconut date balls, peanut butter energy balls or date and walnut energy balls.
I always make a big batch of no bake energy balls and keep them in the fridge because they are perfect for a post-workout snack. These are also great as an afternoon snack and breakfast on the go!
Before we jump into the recipe, let’s talk about how you can customize it and learn some tips.
How to make vegan almond butter energy balls
Almond Flour & Almond Butter
Almond flour gives an amazing texture and also keeps it gluten free. Make sure to use almond butter that is runny and not dry because the texture will change.
Almonds & Shredded Coconut
We will be adding chopped almonds because it gives a really nice crunch. Shredded coconut also adds flavor and texture but you can omit it.
Maple Syrup, Cinnamon and Salt
We will be using maple syrup for this recipe instead of refined sugar for sweetness and balance it out with a pinch of salt. Cinnamon works really well with these ingredients too!
How to make it
- First, add all the ingredients into a large bowl and then mix really well with a spatula or spoon.
- Next, you can use a cookie scoop or your hands and then scoop out 1 tablespoon amounts of the mixture to roll into balls between the palms of your hands. That’s it!
Tips & Variations
