Banana Split Energy Bites

I’ve been obsessed with these Banana Split energy bites all month! They’re the perfect combination of banana, chocolate and strawberry, and they make the best afternoon snack. I have 2 of these with my matcha tea and it truly makes me happy! They’re also great for a grab-n-go breakfast, pre-workout fuel, or an after-dinner treat.

My energy bites are always the perfect amount of sweet. I never use added sugar, just Medjool dates for the base. They’re super simple to make, too. You can whip these up in less than 15 minutes. It always takes me longer to clean up then it does to make energy balls!

The inspiration for my Banana Split Energy bites are these dried baby bananas I found at Trader Joes.

So fun, right?  And they worked perfectly in this banana split recipe! If you can’t find these at Trader Joes, just sub in freeze dried banana or even banana chips if you’re desperate!

If you love a banana split (or anything banana flavored) you will love this recipe!  If you want a little more energy ball inspiration, try these chocolate lemon balls, these fig newton bites, or this round up post.

I always store my no bake energy balls in the freezer (I like them to be super cold), but you can also keep them in the fridge. This recipe made about 20 little balls, so that’s about 10 servings.

Here’s how I made them:

Banana Split Energy Bites


  • 1 cup Medjool dates pitted
  • 1 cup cashews raw
  • 1 tbsp peanut butter
  • 1 tbsp cacao powder
  • 1 bag freeze dried strawberries
  • 1 cup dried baby bananas


  • Pulse the dates and cashews in a food processor until combined.
    Add the peanut butter, cacao powder, strawberries and bananas.
    Pulse until well combined (this may take some time). Then add the nibs and pulse again until the consistency of large sand.
    Makes about 20 small bites!

Women, Fasting & Longevity

The effect of fasting on longevity has fascinated me for years. I remember being in graduate school reading research about how eating less could increase our life span. But I always felt kind of conflicted talking about it. As a dietitian, we weren’t taught about the healing benefits of fasting. We were actually taught just Continue reading >>
