Say hello to THIS gorgeous number! 5 ingredient cashew beet snack dip is here to rock your snack loving world in the most beautiful and delicious way. Besides being such a looker it’s also good for you inside and out – made with beets, soaked cashews, garlic, white or red wine vinegar and salt. THAT’S IT! Crazy easy and crazy good.
This recipe falls decidedly into my favorite category of recipes – SNACKS!
I almost started this post with “snacks are made for summer time eating”. But then I backspaced my way out of that one real quick because I honestly don’t think there’s a time of year where a good snack doesn’t have a place at the table. Amirite?
You guys on team snacks, too? Then you’ve gotta get in on this one. It takes the dip game to the next level.
It was one of those accidental recipes (those are my favorite!) that just sort of happened one thanksgiving when I had an extra batch of cashew cream in the fridge that I didn’t use up when making this gravy, and some extra roasted beets from this recipe. In search of a yummy snack we added those two things plus a few extra goodies to the food processor and this 5 ingredient cashew beet snack dip was born.
I’ve honestly been meaning to share the recipe with you guys for like, um, forever.. but somehow it ended up at the bottom of my blog post ideas list and I just kind of forgot about it (gasp! I know.) until my best friend who helped me come up with the recipe told me she had just made it for a party. And then I snapped back to my senses and put it right back at the top of my list.
I’m sorry. Forgive me. So silly for waiting so long.
These No Bake Cinnamon Roll Energy bites are made with only 7 ingredients and are naturally sweetened with dates! A healthy yet indulgent treat, they are soft and chewy, full of healthy fats and protein, and totally reminiscent of the ultimate breakfast pastry – the cinnamon roll! Without any of the refined sugar/wheat/dairy 💯 It’s a real win/win.
Guys! Hello and happy weekend! Are you ready to talk no bake cinnamon roll energy bites?!
For some reason, I felt a little strange sharing this recipe this time of year. Something about “cinnamon roll” sort of makes me think fall. But then I started thinking about it and I was like nooope, I’m pretty sure cinnamon roll ANYTHING is always going to be delicious and is totally appropriate year round. Ya with me?
So then I asked my friends over on Instagram just to make sure I wasn’t the only one who felt this way, along with some of my trusted taste testers, and everyone seems to be pretty much the same page on the whole love of all things cinnamon roll AND energy bites AND anything yummy that’s also NO BAKE (that makes them fit into the whole warm weather thing, right?) so HERE WE ARE! Getting ready to bite into the gloriousness of these crave worthy energy bites.
Ohhh hi guys!!! I’m back with another tasty snack recipe for you today! Why is this so exciting? Because I’m a firm believer that the world could always use another tasty snack. A snack so good that it forces you stop doing whatever it is you’re doing and pay attention to all the happy things that are happening on your taste buds. These tasty spiced snack nuts are 100% that snack.
I feel like this time of year there’s just so many opportunities for delicious snacks. There’s football games, movies nights (👋🏼 4:30 pm sunset!), Thanksgiving, Christmas, games nights, potlucks, etc etc etc.
We are officially in snacking season. Also known as I’m going to need to amp up my yoga routine season 😂 But really, I have no guilt about enjoying clean and tasty snacks. Snacks that really give you that moment of pure chill + bliss and FEEL indulgent without actually having a lot of junky ingredients in them.
I actually decided to create this simple little recipe for these snacking nuts after developing something of an addiction to some spiced nuts from the bulk foods section at our natural food store. They are seriously so good and it got to the point where I couldn’t walk out without a little bag of them for my drive home, even if I already had some at home from my last shopping trip 🙄
The ingredients were not so totally horrible, but there were a few extra things in there that I’m not always too keen on including in my diet – canola oil and maltodextrin being the two main ones (WHY IS PROCESSED CORN IN EVERYTHING?!)
So I decided to give roasting + spicing my own nuts a try, and they turned out EVEN BETTER than the grocery store version. Boy byeeeeeee.
