Healthy Strawberry Shortcake Energy Bites
- 152g (⅔ cup) Plain, Nonfat Greek Yogurt

- ¼ cup Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
- 1½ tsp Vanilla Crème-Flavored Stevia Extract
- 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
- ¼ tsp Salt
- 127g (1¼ cups) Quinoa Flakes
- 60g (½ cup) Quick Cooking Oats
- 21g (3 tbs ) Coconut Flour
- 30g (1½ cups) Freeze-Dried Strawberries
- In a stand mixer bowl fitted with a beater attachment, add the Greek yogurt, macadamia butter, almond milk, stevia extract, vanilla extract and salt. Mix on low speed.
- While mixing, add the quinoa flakes, then oats, then coconut flour.
- Dump in the freeze-dried strawberries and mix again. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and mix one last time. Cover the bowl and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
- Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Use a cookie scoop to portion out the dough and place on the prepared cookie sheet. Roll the dough into balls. Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate for later!
Would you ever guess that these babies are hiding Greek Yogurt and QUINOA?? Nope. Because they sure don’t taste like it.

With love and good eats,
THIS LOOKS AMAZING!! i love all of your recipes even though I’m 12 haha
How amazing! I’ll try to not eat all of them!
These look delicious, and may I say… the new website design looks absolutely phenomenal! This format is sure to attract many new readers and is an exciting addition for those of us who have followed your blog for years -brava!
Awwww thank you SO much Alexa!! I’m so glad you like the new design! 😀
It’s great to hear from someone who’s been a loyal DWB fan… you’ve just made my day!
I made these, except I did not use Quinoa flakes I just used extra oats. They are delicious, they taste like a strawberry nutri-grain bar, but slash all the hidden sugars and who knows what else.
YAY! SO glad to hear that the extra oats worked to replace the quinoa flakes, I wasn’t sure if that would work or not. Thanks for letting me know! 😀
This recipe looks delicious! Can you share where you got that gorgeous teal bowl/jar from?

What is a good replacementioned for the almond butter? I need something nut free
I haven’t tried subbing the nut butter here so I’m not 100% sure, but I suppose you can try a seed butter? I wouldn’t recommend omitting it though.
Could you possible substitute the almond butter with ghee vanilla or truffle butter maybe?
I’ve never used ghee before so I can’t be sure. Feel free to test it out though! 🙂
Any thoughts on adding a Vanilla Protein Powder? If so, do you recommend a certain type of protein (pea, whey, etc…)? Looking forward to making these this weekend! Thanks.
I haven’t tried adding protein powder in this recipe, but that’s a great idea! I think a scoop (or two) of whey protein might be able to replace the coconut flour! 🙂
Any suggestions on what to use instead of greek yogurt?
If you’re allergic to dairy, you can try nondairy yogurt instead!

do these need to always be refrigerated since they have yogurt? how long do they last?
They should last a week or so. Yogurt keeps for a bit, unlike milk. These are also freezer-friendly! Just be sure to store them in an airtight container. Hope you like the energy bites! 🙂
Can a blender be used instead of a food processer?
I don’t think a blender would work very well here but you can try it! 🙂
