Rebuild Dark Chocolate Almond Energy Bites

30 bites
  • 1 TBSP flax seeds
  • 1 TBSP chia seeds
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/2 cup dried plums (about 14)
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/3 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup almond butter
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats (1-minute type)
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 TBSP agave syrup
  • 6 scoops Herbalife Rebuild Strength
  • 1 TBSP Herbalife Rebuild Strength
  • 1 TBSP unsweetened dark cocoa powder
  • In a small bowl, combine flax and chia seeds with almond milk and let stand while you prepare remaining ingredients.
  • Chop dried plums coarsely (or pulse in the food processor, being careful not to over-process – you want the fruit chopped, not blended).
  • Transfer to a large bowl and add raisins, chocolate chips, almond butter, rolled oats, agave, vanilla, and Rebuild Strength.
  • Mix well with your hands until well mixed; the mixture should just hold together. If it seems dry, add water or almond milk a tablespoon at a time, being careful not to make the final mixture too soft.
  • Dampen hands with water and roll mixture into 1” balls.
  • In a small bowl, combine 1 TBSP Rebuild Strength and cocoa powder. Roll balls in this mixture to coat completely.  Line a covered storage container with waxed paper. Place balls on waxed paper, cover and store in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
