Trail Mix Energy Bites

Trail mix energy bites made with all the trail mix essentials – almonds, cashews, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, raisins, chocolate chips and more. Make these energy bites in minutes in your food processor, then hit the trails!

There are still many warm months ahead, which means more time on trails, which means more trail snacks, which means: trail mix.

I may not be very conventional in my eating habits (I eat non-”breakfast” foods for breakfast, like salmon and roasted vegetables, or stir fry veggies and rice, and consider tuna salad on crackers to be a perfectly acceptable “second dinner”), but trail mix has been and always will be a must when it comes to outdoor activity. AND indoor lounging. Let’s face it: trail mix is life. 

Energy bites (or balls, if you will) are on constant rotation in my home. When I finish a batch, I make another one, always going for a different flavor. They take mere minutes to make, are a great lower-sugar snack, and are easy to pack up and take with you anywhere you go.

So for this rendition of energy bites, we’re taking the trail mix approach, incorporating your classic trail mix ingredients with almond butter and dates for a convenient trail mix explosion.

Let’s whip them out!

Superfood Blueberry Dark Chocolate Energy Balls made with walnuts, almonds, dates, flax seed oil, and more! A healthy snack recipe | TheRoastedRoot.net #paleo #vegan #healthy

You may have noticed a theme with my snacks section of this site. Let’s face it – they’re mostly nut-based and they’re mostly balls. The  amount of snack recipes I share in comparison to main dishes is pretty dismal by virtue of the fact that I’m not a big snacker.

But when it comes to nuts, seeds, and dried fruit all balled up together in an energy bite? Sign me up.

When I head out of town for a long road trip or go for a long jaunt in the mountains, I’ll often snag some balls in case I have to go more than a few hours between meals. I don’t rely on store-bought snacks, as I find they contain too much sugar and/or contain ingredients I try to avoid.

For this rendition of energy balls, I used all superfood ingredients to generate a ball that is jam packed with healthy fat, antioxidants, minerals, and all sorts of health benefits. PLUS they taste like blueberry chocolatey goodness, which is a major win in my book.
