Chestnut No Bake Energy Bites

Back to school is around the corner. That means lots of rushed and busy mornings. During this time it is crucial to have quick foods to eat on hand that will keep you alert and focused throughout the school year. These chestnut no bake energy bites are the perfect remedy!

The idea to use chestnuts in a no bake energy bite recipe was inspired by the traditional chestnut cake. When roasted chestnuts are very soft and sweet and make the perfect base for a chestnut cake (a recipe that is popular in Asian ans European countries) however it is very labor intensive to make. So I took most of the most popular elements of that dessert and turned it into some simple, easy, and quick to eat either as a snack or dessert!

Naturally sweeten with dates and chestnuts and the pear balances out the sweetness with a slight tartness to it. This drink has 26 grams of healthy whole curvy carbohydrates.
