The healthy qualities of this delicious little snack all begin with the Medjool dates that form the basis of the Energy Bites. These sweet little nuggets contain tons of great calories, protein and carbs, and they won’t weigh you down with unwanted fat. They’re rich in dietary fiber, too, and can be a great aid in preventing constipation. Medjool dates also contain tons of potassium (regulates the blood sugar), copper (helps in the formation of red blood cells), and tons of energy that’s introduced into your body because of the high levels of natural sugar in them.
Walnuts, which add texture and flavor to the snack, also feature amino acids that support a healthy heart. Their antioxidant properties also help to improve brain health. The Hemp seeds in the recipe are an excellent source of essential fatty acids and are rich in digestible protein, keeping you feeling full of energy when you need it most.
