These Samoas energy bites are made with only 6 ingredients — filled with caramel flavor from the dates, studded with chocolate chips and coated in toasted coconut. Vegan and gluten-free.
I don’t remember the last time I ate a real Girl Scout cookie, but growing up I had three favorites and lately I’ve been trying to make healthy, homemade versions for each. So far I have a healthy Samoas recipe, Thin Mints and Tagalongs.
Since Samoas are my absolute fave, I decided to also create an energy ball using the same flavorful profile using dates, chocolate and toasted coconut. These little bites/balls totally fit the bill. They’re sweet, but not too sweet and the toasted coconut makes them really taste like Samoas.
I’ve made similar balls, that were rolled in regular dried coconut before and I must say that the toasted coconut lends a rich flavor that definitely makes these little guys seem more decadent.
So if you’re craving Girl Scout cookies this spring, just whip up a batch of these. Your sweet tooth will be cured with a treat made of only six ingredients and without any high fructose corn syrup, artificial coloring or hydrogenated oils.
I hope you all like them as much as I do. 🙂
