Second-Wind Hazlenut Bites

We often feature snacks that can be purchased but do you know how easy it is to make your own snacks and keep them on hand for 2 weeks? See below for one of our favorites!

We are in love with Stephanie Tourles book, Raw Energy. It’s chock full of easy delicious recipes that provide quick energy boosts on the go.

Try these Second-Wind Hazelnut Bites.

Makes about two dozen.

  • ½ cup raw hazelnuts
  • ¼ cup raw, hulled sunflower seeds
  • ½ cup unsweetened coconut, finely shredded
  • ¼ cup raw honey
  • ¼ cup raw tahini


Grind the hazelnuts and sunflower seeds into a medium-fine meal in a nut and seed grinder.

Transfer the nut mixture to a medium bowl and stir in the coconut, honey and tahini. Use your hands to blend the ingredients well and mash them into a small, cohesive dough ball.

Pinch off small pieces of dough and roll them into bite-size balls about 1 inchch in diameter.

For the best flavor and consistency, allow the balls to set for 24 hours before eating. Store the balls in a tightly sealed container in the refrigerator and consume within 2 or 3 weeks. They may be individually wrapped, using waxed paper or plastic wrap, and taken with you to enjoy as portable energy bites.
