The fruit bites we have for you today will instantly raise your energy levels and are quite easy to make. Just like traditional bliss balls, you just mix everything in a food processor and roll them into tiny balls. Besides tasting great, they will give your energy levels a boost and help treat a number of conditions. If your immune system is weak, these tiny and chewy fruit bites are everything you need.
Here’s what you need to do:
- ½ cup gluten-free oats
- ½ cup Medjool dates
- ¼ teaspoon Oregon grape root powder
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil
- 1 teaspoon licorice root (powdered)
- 1 teaspoon Echinacea root (powdered)
It’s simple really – you mix the dates and coconut oil in a food processor until you get a smooth texture. Add the other ingredients afterward and mix well until the mix is homogenous. Next, take a teaspoon of the dough and roll it into small marbles. Repeat the process until you’ve finished the dough. Put the chewy fruity bites in the fridge to solidify, then store for a few hours before eating them.
The fruity bites owe their health benefits due to the ingredients.
