These little no-bake bites are a perfect energy booster and end of summer (or any time!) treat. The toasted seeds give it the perfect crunch, and orange zest the perfect pop of flavor.
They're a no-bake remix of my high-protein quinoa cookie recipe, and I'm having a hard time deciding which one I like better...
Make them with or without the touch of coffee beans, you can swap cocoa nibs or chocolate chips if you prefer. Or go with the dried cranberries from the baked version, which would be lovely with the orange zest.
No-bake Quinoa Coffee Energy Bites
Prep time: 30 minutes
Chill Time: 15 minutes
Time from start to eating: 45 minutes
Makes 12 bites
Note: I've halved the recipe from what I filmed, because unless you plan to eat 24 of these little bites in the next week, the coffee beans don't maintain their crunch in the moisture of the rest of the ingredients. Best to make smaller batches.
