Trail Mix Bites

Bites

Ohh hey guys. I hope you all had a great weekend! Mine was pretty good up at the cottage. I managed to burn my neck and my legs but luckily my face was spared.. that’s always the worst place to burn!

We ended up coming home Sunday night because Grant had a lot of work to do but I didn’t mind at all, the Eaton Centre was open so I got some much needed shopping in. Gotta love those Labour Day sales ;)!

I have some exciting posts coming up in the next few weeks, mostly wedding related (teaser – my bridesmaid boxes and some wedding dress fun). I promise I will post my peach crisp recipe soon (for those of you begging for it). But for now I have a really yummy energy bite recipe! Everyone has their own go-to bite recipe but I thought I would share this one because it is good and simple, and there’s nothing better than good and simple!

Dates

It only takes a few minutes to make these and then just pop them in the freezer and grab when necessary. I usually take one or two before/after runs or when I need a little something when I’m running out the door in the morning.

If you have a really tasty bite recipe, post it in the comments page! I’d love to see what you’ve been whipping up!

On another note – don’t mind some of the weird things on the blog for the next week or so. I’m doing some changes and it may cause some disturbances. Don’t fret, everything should be running smoothly soon.

What’s your favourite ‘energy ball bite’?

Any advice for me while I update a few things on the blog? I won’t be offended, I swear! I got a great suggestion the other day to get a print button for my recipes.. I’m working on it!

  1. Yum I love energy bites! These look delicious. Yay for updating the blog! My advice would be to be patient. It’s going to take some time for it to turn out exactly as you want it. Good luck!

  2. Mmmm, I want! I’m heading out of town this weekend and these would make a great road trip snack! My fav energy ball bit is a big scoop of almond butter. :D

  3. These would be gone so fast in my house. I adore trail mix! These little babies look great!

    Yum! These look great. I’ve only made energy bites once and I loved them so I need to do it again soon.
    It’s always nice when you can turn a day without the man into shopping day!

  5. Oooooh, these look delicious! :)
