Nut-free Beetroot Energy Bites

These cute little bites are jam-packed with energy boosting ingredients such as sunflower seeds, chia seeds, raisins, dates, coconut oil and beetroot. I know beetroot mixed with dry fruit sounds a bit weird but I promise you won’t even taste it. Once I even gave them to my little nieces and they loved it!

Makes: 15 bites
Preparation time: 20 minutes


  • 1/2 cup dates
  • 1/3 cup raisins
  • 1/3 cup sunflower seeds
  • 3 tbsp shredded coconut for coating
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tsp beetroot powder


  1. In a high-speed food processor process the dates until they form a sticky paste, add the raisins, coconut oil, chia seeds and process until you have a sticky dough.
  2. Remove the dough from the processor and wrap it in a clingfilm and place in the fridge for about an hour.
  3. Meanwhile prepare the beetroot coating by placing the shredded coconut into a small glass with a lid, add the beetroot powder and shake well. The beetroot powder will colour the shredded coconut a nice pink colour.
  4. Remove the dough from the fridge and roll out 15 balls and coat them with the pink shredded coconut.
  5. Serve immediately or store in an airtight container.
