Coconut Mojito Energy Bites (Vegan and Paleo)

Coconut Mojito Energy Bites.  I just LOVE mojitos in the summer.  I make them often and I always seem to have mint and limes in the house.   So I thought I would bring those flavors into an energy bite recipe for you.

I thought coconut would go really well with the flavors of mint and lime, so I added that in as well.  I hope you enjoy them!!

If you need to make these nut free, you can use sunflower butter and another flour in place of the cashew butter and almond flour.   Most flour substitutes should work.  The only one I would not try to use is coconut flour.  It can be a very tricky thing to sub in recipes.

If you want to add even more nutrition, you can also add chia, flax or seeds to these. If you choose to do that, you may need to adjust the liquids as well.

I used roasted and unsalted cashew butter when making these.  If you use unsalted, I suggest adding a little salt to the recipe.  Maybe a pinch?

I think these cookies are healthy enough for breakfast too.  The quinoa flakes and nut butter add a nice amount of fat and protein, keeping you full for a while.  If you don’t want to use quinoa flakes, you can use quick oats instead.

This recipe is also easy to make nut free by using sunflower butter.  I imagine it should work out just fine.  These healthy cookies literally took 5 minutes to whip together too!
