Millet energy bites
Here are some quick and nutritious energy bites that you can make ahead and store. They are great as healthy snacks on-the-go for the whole family! It is a sneaky way to get your picky kids to eat almonds and dates too!
You may use any millet flour you like. In this recipe, I have used ragi and bajra flour.

Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 3 minutes

Yields: About 25 lemon sized energy bites

Ingredients
1/2 cup ragi flour
1/2 cup bajra flour
1 cup pitted dates
1 cup almonds, whole
1 cup dry coconut flakes
1/2 cup honey

Millet energy bites


  • Dry roast the ragi and bajra flour in a pan on medium heat. After about 3 to 5 minutes, the flours will be aromatic. Remove from heat and let it cool completely.
  • In a food processor, ad the millet flours, dates, almonds and coconut flakes. Give it about 8 to 10 pulses, until the almonds, dates and coconuts and all shredded down uniformly.
  • Add honey now, and give it quick pulses until the mixture is crumbly and starts to gather into a dough. Remove and mold them into lemon sized balls. They can be stored at room temperature. Chilling it in the fridge will keep if fresh for upto two weeks.
