To make this easy energy bites you only need 4 simple ingredients:

  • Cashews: the base for a perfect raw dough! I like using raw cashews for this recipe, but you can use roasted if you prefer.
  • Medjool Dates: I love using dates as a natural sweetener. Besides that, its thick and chewy texture helps to hold the energy bites together. So delicious! If your dates are more on the dry side, I recommend soaking them in hot water before making this recipe.
  • Cinnamon: essential for a warm and spice flavor. I use cinnamon for both: the dough and the filling. Cinnamon is a family favorite flavor.
  • Salt: just a dash is needed to bring out the best of all the flavors.
