Happy Monday, friends! How’s your week going so far?
Cody and I had another baby appointment on Friday and we were able to see our little guy happily moving! He’s been growing so much, y’all. Thankfully, I’m now feeling MUCH better than I was during the first trimester and have hit the point where I’m starting to crave all the things. During the first trimester I pretty much couldn’t stand anything sweet, but now I’m like I NEED DIS. And let me just say, these Strawberry Cheesecake No-Bake Energy Bites are hitting the spot!
How to make these Strawberry Cheesecake No-Bake Energy Bites:
They’re SO easy to make! Just blend rolled oats, then mix in vegan protein powder, cashew butter, coconut oil, agave (or honey), strawberry powder (or powdered freeze dried strawberries), and strawberry extract (optional).
Top ’em off any way you want ’em! Some optional topping ideas to roll these bites in are:
- Coconut yogurt (or really any kind of yogurt)
- Coconut shavings
- Vegan/gluten-free graham crackers (crushed into a powder)
- All of the above
The yogurt + graham cracker topping really gives these no-bake energy bites that “cheesecake” flavor! It was my personal fave. I froze these after dipping them in the yogurt and sprinkling them with graham crackers so that the yogurt would harden, then let them thaw just a little bit before eating/serving. The only downside is that if you let them thaw for too long, the yogurt will definitely go back to being yogurt. Even so, they’re still DELISH!
These Strawberry Cheesecake No-Bake Energy Bites can last about 2 weeks in the refrigerator!
But let’s be honest. They will definitely be devoured before then!
TBH, I have to hold myself back from basically eating them all. And sometimes I pretty much hold nothing back. We’re all about real talk here, right?
