Easy, simple, and quick energy bites that are super fudgy and laced with hints of orange zest and almond butter.
In a food processor, blend together oats and walnuts (and protein powder, if added) until it resembles a flour. Add in cocoa powder, orange zest, almond butter, coconut oil, and maple syrup. Add 1-2 tsp water until the dough starts to come together. Add cacao nibs and pulse a few more times to combine.
Taking 1 heaping tbsp of dough at a time, roll into balls. Store in the fridge in an airtight container.
*Add maple syrup to your preferred sweetness or feel free to substitute with 1-2 pitted, medjool dates.
