Welcome to Energy Bites!
I created this site as a resource for Healthy, Raw, Vegan, Sugar Free and Gluten Free Recipes. Who says healthy doesn’t taste as good?
I created my first Energy Ball whilst researching healthy recipes using Superfoods, now I’ve caught the bug and can’t stop creating new combinations.
You may notice some labels on the Recipes, which I have explained below.
A Raw Recipe includes only the use of Ingredients that have not been cooked or heated above 40 oC (Raw Foodies believe that the useful Digestive Enzymes in Raw Food are destroyed above this), but I generally use Ingredients that haven’t been heated at all!
Raw Foods are also typically much more Nutritious than your standard processed supermarket foods!
Veganism is a way of living that excludes (as far as possible) all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing and any other purpose.
A Vegan Recipe does not use any ingredients which are or have derived from Animals. This means no Meat, Fish, Animals Fats, Gelatine, Dairy Products, Eggs or Honey.
Gluten is a Protein found in Wheat, Barley, Rye, Oats and Malts.
As most of the Recipes on here use only Raw, unprocessed ingredients they will generally be Gluten-Free! But where they are not, I will try and list Gluten-Free Alternatives that you could use!
When you see the No Added Sugar button it means that only Natural Sugars are present in the Ingredients (and recipe as a whole). I never add Sugar to my Raw Recipes, when using such naturally sweet ingredients like Dates and Apricots you don’t need to!
I hope you enjoy the Free Recipes – I’ll be uploading more all the time.
