Sunflower Seed Butter Energy Bites

Back-to-school season means meal prep is back in full swing and my clients want their fridges stocked with healthy meals and snacks. Packing school lunches can be tricky since you have to be wary of those with allergies. Thankfully these energy bites are nut-free so they are safe to pack for a lunch treat or mid-afternoon snack!
And these aren’t just for the kiddos, obviously. I also enjoy these for breakfast with coffee or tea or as an afternoon pick-me-up. 

1. Place sunflower seed butter and dates in a food processor and process until almost smooth.

2. Add the remaining ingredients and process until a thick dough forms, scraping down the sides of the bowl as you go (you can add a small amount of water if needed).

3. Roll the dough into 16 equally sized bites. Store in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
