The Toppings

We are SUPER lucky to live in the same town as the folks over at Jem Organics, and we get to enjoy all their glorious nut butters often! I made these tasty pecan date energy bites with regular unflavored almond butter in the balls themselves, but then topped them with Jem, and oh man – best decision ever! These little bites are pretty much all I’d crave! Get your hands on Jem Organics nut butter and thank us later! My favorite flavor in their regular roundup is either cashew cardamom or cinnamon maca. Justin loves the superberry flavor. The raw cacao nibs (and 5th ingredient) are optional. I like the little crunch they add.

It’s So Easy

All you need is a food processor to bring these pecan date energy bites to life. You just combine all of the ingredients in your processor and let it go until the mixture balls up. You might have to stop and scrape the sides down a couple times, but that’s it! I like to line a baking sheet with parchment paper and roll the balls out and set them on the baking sheet. Then, I roll some in cacao nibs, some in chopped pecans and drizzle with Jem nut butter. Ta-da! Move them to the freezer and let them set. You will love the flavor, texture and how easily these pecan date energy bites come together.
