These coconut mango energy boosting bites are so yummy and healthy. Super easy and quick to make. Seriously this recipe requires 3 steps and 5 ingredients! Try them out for a perfect for an on the go snack.


These are called 'energy' bites thanks to the natural sugars contained in the dried dates and mangos. Dates are great for maintaining energy, but can be boring on their own. They're used in the majority of protein/energy ball recipes and help to create the perfect texture. Dried fruit and flax seeds are also a great source of fiber and other nutrients!


You can add dried pineapple for this recipe or substitute other fruits/flavors. I used ground flax seed as a binder, but chopped nuts are a wonderful alternative.
