Low Sugar Almond & Oat Energy Bites

I love making these energy balls for a great snack or post-workout pick-me-up. To make the classic power bite just a little healthier I used fewer sugary ingredients than most recipes use- like sugar, dates, honey, dried fruit and more. Instead of using high-sugar ingredients to help keep these balls together, I kept these together by using slightly more nut butter that offers more minerals and micronutrients like calcium, iron, phosphorus and more. Don’t forget that you can swap in any dry ingredients or fruit that you want to make these power bites your own.
