I made you a present!

Today’s SUPER EASY recipe ~ Low Carb No-Bake Nutty Caramel Energy Bites ~ is brought to you courtesy of The Recipe ReDux and #NationalNutDay…

We had to take advantage of the fact that National Nut Day (October 22nd) falls on one of our ReDux monthly theme post days โ€“ so we can all go nuts! Share a healthy nut-filled recipe: Think whole nuts, chopped nuts, ground nuts, nut butter and/or nut flour. And Happy Nut Day!

And, I probably ought to thank my mother for this recipe as well, as she has inspired me to keep a freezer drawer full of nuts {yes-not only do I have a tea drawer, I have a nut drawer as well!} at all times.

Got 5 minutes to spare? Whip up a batch of these insanely delicious Low Carb No-Bake Nutty Caramel Energy Bites for a healthy treat!

In addition, although I try not to play favorites as far as my nut choices are concerned, my mom is “that type”- you know the one who picks out all the cashew nuts from the See’s Mixed Nut can. You too??? So, cashew nuts in these energy bites were a must.

Oh, and did I mention that, as an added bonus, they’re low carb {5 g per bite} and low sugar {3 g per bite}, but absolutely, completely, utterly delicious too???

You’re welcome mom ๐Ÿ™‚

Nutrition/Tasting Notes

  • Naturally gluten-free, grain-free, low carb/low sugar, vegan, and paleo, these Caramel Energy Bites are also free of these allergens: wheat, dairy, egg, and soy.
  • These are easily made low FODMAP by omitting the date {add a little more maple syrup if desired} and substituting the cashew nuts with almonds, macadamia nuts, or another lower FODMAP nut.
  • I made three versions-plain, hemp, and pumpkin pie spice. It’s hard to decide which one I like the best-they’re all delicious! If you make them, I’d love to know what your favorite one is!
  • Just like my No Bake Cocoa Lemon Energy Bites, I love these frozen, but they are also yummy {and a little softer too} stored in the refrigerator.
These Low Carb No-Bake Nutty Caramel Energy Bites are insanely delicious, and, bonus, a little bit healthy too!

  1. Beautiful nail color choice EA if I do say so :). And I have to admit, I am a selective nut eater myself! I don’t dislike any nuts, but I’m drawn to almonds first… then those Brazil nuts, then of course pecans.. and then I’ll round out with peanuts. But, my favorite nut butter is peanut butter, so technically no one is in last place lol! Great recipe!

  2. These look so tasty, I love how simple they are and how they combine so many tasty things into one little bite!
    Oh- and I am loving that nail polish color too ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Hi Viviane! To be completely honest, since I was busy recipe testing yesterday, the only thing I had to eat all day until dinner were a few of these energy bits. Not usually what I do/recommend, BUT, I had plenty of energy yesterday ๐Ÿ™‚
