No-Bake Gluten-Free Chocolate Energy Bites

Phew. That title is a mouthful. And so are these bites... *cymbal* Also known as "bliss balls," these amazing treats are raw, vegan, nut-free, gluten-free and naturally sweetened. Allow me to list a few other ways these energy bites are going to rock your world: you don't have to bake them, they are packed with antioxidants, they take 10 minutes to make, they last in the freezer for weeks or fridge for days, and your kids will think they are treats.

Impossible, you say? POSSIBLE! Tastes like crap, you say? DELICIOUS! Here's the proof...

Because these energy bites are nut free you can eat them guilt-free in public and even send them to school/daycare. They make a fantastic snack on the go and healthy bedtime treat. We make them small for small faces, and so we can enjoy a few without going overboard. You can also make fewer large bites for those times you just want to stuff your face. You know what I mean.

I designed this recipe to be nut-free to ensure it is safe for sampling at this weekend's BabyTime Show. If you prefer a nut-full version, substitute almond butter for the tahini.
