Simone Thomas Wellness Mini Vampires Energy Bites Nutrihome Recipe

Mini Vampires Energy Bites

These energy balls are a perfect treat - they are quick to prepare, they do not need baking and are made from very basic ingredients you can easily find in your kitchen cupboard. I enjoy them in the morning with a cup of tea or have them in the late afternoon when I need a little energy boost between meetings with clients.

They are full of protein and fibre - I love to make mine with dark chocolate and chopped nuts but you can easily replace the ingredients with anything you like - dried fruits and a bit of peanut butter for example.These energy balls are made with Medjool dates, which are naturally sticky and sweet, full of fiber and antioxidants. The store-bought energy bars often contain sugar – skip them and make these super healthy balls at home. Kids love them too, especially when they look like super cute Mini vampires!

Simone Thomas Wellness Mini Vampires Energy Bites Nutrihome Recipe


(Makes 20)
• 200 g oats
• 1 tsp sea salt
• 1 tsp ground cinnamon
• 1 tsp vanilla extract
• 100 g mixed nuts, chopped
• 100 g chia needs
• 30 g 70% dark chocolate, chopped into small pieces
• 200 g pitted Medjool dates or date paste
• 10 wholegrain crackers
• Pack of edible eyes (I used Wilton Large Candy Edible Eyeballs)


• In a large bowl (if you are using a stand mixer use the stand mixer bowl) combine the oats, salt, cinnamon, vanilla extract, mixed notes, and dark chocolate.
• Add the dates paste in a small amount. Mix slowly, gradually adding more paste until the ingredients combine and the mixture is sticky. If you choose to use your hands or a wooden spoon, the technique is the same - mix all the ingredients until combined.
• Roll the mixture, into 20 g balls and decorate with the edible eyes.
• Break the crackers into two pieces and insert one “wing” on the left of the energy bite and the second one on the right.
• Place into a freezer for around 30 minutes.
• Enjoy.
• Keep in the jar in the fridge for up to 3 weeks.
