These Healthy Strawberry Shortcake Energy Bites are perfect for when you’re craving something fruity and delicious, but want something light and nutritious!
- 152g (⅔ cup) Plain, Nonfat Greek Yogurt
- 128g (½ cup) Homemade Macadamia Butter (or nut butter of choice)
- 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!
If you don't have Quinoa Flakes, you can try using all Quick Cooking Oats, but I haven't tried it.
Would you ever guess that these babies are hiding Greek Yogurt and QUINOA?? Nope. Because they sure don’t taste like it.
All the flavor of Strawberry Shortcake but in a portable, bite-sized form. And, BONUS! They’re refined sugar free and gluten free. BOOM. I’ll take twelve 😉
With love and good eats,
