I always have some energy bites waiting for me in the freezer. And when I get to hungry to think straight, my mind start screaming for something sweet, that will give me immediate energy. And at that moment I can´t even think about an apple or a banana, even though it would help. I want it to be something heavier and creamier. That is why I always keep few different types of healthy sweets in my freezer to choose from. Here is one delicious recipe that you have to try. It literally melts in your mouth.
- 150 gr of shredded coconut (plus extra for coding)
- 1 bag (130 gr) of dried mango, soaked in water for 20-30 minutes and then drained.
- 5 tablespoon coconut oil
- 25 gr maple syrup (or agave syrup)
- 1,5 teaspoon lemon zest
Mix everything together in a food processor and blend for a minute or two.
Pour around ½ a cup of shredded coconut in a dish, form the dough into small ball bites and coat them by rolling them in the shredded coconut.
Keep the bites in the fridge or freezer in an air-tide container.
