If you love no-bake energy bites, you have to try these! Get your daily dose of vitamin D in the form of a delicious, strawberry treat. They're so easy to make and perfect year-round, but especially as the days get warmer and our motivation to use the oven dwindles. The majority of people in the US are vitamin D deficient (yes, even during summer) so finding ways to get your vitamin D in a way that doesn't feel like a chore AND tastes good, is a win-win!
What you'll need: 1/2 cup fresh strawberries 1/2 cup almonds 4 pitted dates 1/4 cup almond butter 1/2 cup oats 1/2 cup coconut shreds 2 tablespoons Barlean's Seriously Delicious Vitamin D3
Here's how to make them: In a blender or food processor, combine strawberries, vitamin D, almonds, dates, and almond butter Once well combined, put the mixture into a large bowl and separate coconut shreds into halves Add oats and half of the coconut shreds Shape the mixture into balls, roll in the remaining coconut shreds Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet and let them set in the fridge for 2 hours before eating!
Enjoy! If you make these, we'd love to hear how you liked them!
