I made you some Grain Free Energy Bites. Vegan too! So the other day I made some Hazelnut Milk. It was delicious!
When you make nut milk, you are left with a “meal.” You can dry it out in the oven and use it in gluten free baking.
I have not had much success with my leftover almond meal in the past. I had always tried making baked goods, but could never really get anything to bind.
Then an idea came to me. Make some energy bites. The dates helped with the binding. Success!
These are vegan, dairy free, grain free and gluten free. I would love to hear other success stories when it comes to re-purposing leftover meal. Please share in the comments!
Grain Free Energy Bites
10 minPrep Time
1 hr, 10 Total Time
- 10-12 medjool dates
- 1 – 1 1/2 cups leftover hazelnut meal or almond meal
- 1 cup shredded coconut
- 3-4 T water
- Throw everything in the food processor and mix until a dough forms. If it seems a bit dry, you can add more water.
- Roll into balls and chill in the fridge for an hour to set.
This also would work with leftover almond meal as well. I would like to note that these are mildly sweet, so if you like an extra sweet flavor you probably want to add a few tablespoons of liquid sweetener. I liked them just the way they were.
