I make many varieties of raw energy bites... but this recipe is between a cookie and an energy bar. Call it whichever, they are vegan, gluten free, health promoting and delicious.
This recipe goes a step further than most simple energy bites by using some special ingredients and dehydrating the bites. Why bother to dehydrate? Well raw bites can become mushy in the heat or in your kit pocket. They are also more perishable in the raw form. Dehydrating them is ideal for taking on hikes, bike rides, or just saving fridge space. The use of Mesquite powder helps add natural sweetness, fiber, and control blood sugar while the Cordyceps might help boost your endurances abilities. Cayenne also isn't there just for show as it plays a role in stimulating your metabolism and controls cravings by providing that balancing kick of heat.
