A Word On Ingredients
A word to the wise: check the ingredients listed on the products you are buying.
You want dates with nothing added.
You want unsweetened coconut (some brands have lots of added sugar!).
The riper your banana the sweeter your energy bites.
Check the puffed rice. Sometimes that can have lots of added sugar too.
Can Banana Energy Balls Be Frozen?
Just make them up according to the instructions.
Once rolled pop them into an airtight container and store in the freezer until ready to use.
To thaw just pull them out in the morning and they will be ready for your snacking pleasure by mid-morning.
If kept in the fridge these snack bites should last around 3-5 days as long as they are kept in an airtight container. They don’t last as long as some other energy bites because of the fresh produce in there.
