Have you ever made homemade Walnut (or any nut) milk and wondered what to do with the pulp that was left over? Well I have a simple and very tasty snack recipe just for you! These Walnut Energy Bites are so quick and easy to make and will be ready to go for a weeks worth of snacks. Now, if you do not have any walnut pulp you can easily make these bites using whole walnuts (or whatever nut you’d like). I hope you all enjoy these as much as I did!
1c walnut pulp
1c soaked and pitted Medjool dates
2 Tbsp cocoa powder
2-3 Tbsp nut butter (I used peanut butter because peanut butter is life)
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla extract
Place walnut pulp and dates in a food processor using a fitted “S” blade and process until crumbly. Add in the cocoa powder, nut butter, cinnamon, and vanilla extract and blend until a batter is formed.
Scoop the dough into a heaping tablespoon, roll between your hands to form balls. Arrange them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, then place in the freezer to set for at least an hour before serving. Store the balls in a sealed container in the fridge for up to a week or, or in the freezer for a longer shelf life.
You can easily roll these bites in cocoa powder, powdered peanut butter, finely chopped nuts, or even coconut flakes. I went for the simple route this time, but next time coconut flakes are in these bite’s future!
