Introduction: Accidentally Vegan: Clean Energy Bites

About: I’m a self-trained cook, cooking (and blogging about it!) for myself and my husband in our condo. Cue the cozy domesticity!

I used to be a raw foodist, due to GI issues. I was sort of accidentally vegan because of that, but aside from that was never really into vegan cooking.

Whether or not you are, this recipe will change how you think about vegan food -- seriously! Forget bland and lack-lustre "clean" eating -- these cookies/energy bites will have you gobbling them up and asking for more!

Step 1: Mix. Bake. Eat. Yes, It's That Easy.

Tara, a talented, clean-cooking, glowing-skinned colleague, who spoils us all with her home-baked goods on a regular basis, made these and brought them into my work, where I promptly devoured them. She has kindly given me permission to share this with you (she rocks!).

Tara’s Awesome Clean Energy Bites

  • two bananas
  • 1 c. oats
  • 1/4 c. peanut butter (all-natural)
  • 1/4 c. chocolate chips (or berries)

Mix all together and spoon onto a piece of parchment paper on a cookie sheet. Bake for 15 minutes at 350 degrees and cool. (The energy bites will still look a bit damp. That’s ok.) Eat. Revel in your health!

See? Was that not easy? And, more importantly, tasty? Mmm...I want another one now!
