Shocker of the year: I made a spherical snack.

(I get a little carried away sometimes.. they’re just so cute and convenient.)

The other day, I had a major sweet tooth attack. It wasn’t intense in the way that we needed an emergency drive to The Cravory, but I was definitely in the mood for something sweet. Liv was napping, I was scrolling through Facebook (aka wasting time) and happened upon an energy bite recipe that OTF Point Loma had posted. I had all of the ingredients on hand, and decided to add in two of my favorite superfoods: chia seeds and goji berries.

Crisis averted.

Not only do they taste like cookie dough, but also make a fantastic pre-workout treat with an awesome combination of smart carbs, healthy fats and protein. They last in the fridge for up to a week, so they’d be perfect to make in advance to enjoy for a quick and healthy snack.

The only downside: I’m not exactly sure of the recipe yield. Some dough went missing in the creation process 😉

    This is completely for selfish reasons but have you ever considered calculating Weight Watchers Points Plus for your delicious creations?

    • Fitnessista says:

      i definitely could start doing that! i’d like to start posting nutrition content on a separate page for those interested, and could add that too

      • I don’t know how many, if any besides me, are on Weight Watchers but it certainly couldn’t hurt and would be SO greatly appreciated! Thanks!

      • I would LOVE to see the nutritional content of your recipes! Thx!

  5. Superfood cookie dough sounds like something that I would definitely be addicted to! Looks delicious!

  6. These look like a great pre-workout snack! I just made some of your amazeballs yesterday, after doing one of your barre burner videos. What a burn! I’m surprised I can walk today. I will be using more of your workouts as I’m in a bit of a workout rut right now. Thanks for being awesome at what you do. 🙂

  7. These sound amazing! I am totally giving this recipe to my sister as well 🙂

  8. I wanted to stop back and comment on these again because my kiddo’s (ages 2, 6, 7) just helped me make these and of course they are the main taste testers and they were a HUGE HIT! They asked me to make them everyday! 🙂

    Thanks for coming up with great family friends recipes. PS: I LOVE the addition of almond meal!

  9. Yum! I love bites. I’ve never had goji berries before.

  10. These are making my sweet tooth all twitterpated. Besides, sphere-shaped things are just more fun to eat!

    (Umm, just reread that. Why does it sound so dirty? hahaha)

  11. your Cookie Dough cereal is one of my favorite breakfasts EVER. So I will definitely have to try your superfood cookie dough.

  12. These looks delicious and easy to make! I don’t have a food processor so being able to just mix the ingredients in a bowl suits me. I’ve printed out the recipe to make this weekend. Thanks for sharing! 🙂

  13. pre-workout snack…2am breastfeeding snack….same thing haha. thanks for the recipe!

  14. I NEED these spherical snacks in my life. NEED. I kind of hate that OTF PL is right by the Cravory. It’s really not nice. Their cookies are just insane.

  15. Yes for Goji Berries and Chia Seeds! Way too long since I had those!

  16. OMG these look the I have to try them although I am allergic to almonds so will sub with coconut hope it tastes great 🙂

  17. could you maybe do a post on different flours, uses & subs? and tastes? like oat, almond, coconut, along with wheat, or anything else?

    • Fitnessista says:


      • Seconded! This would be great – I don’t have any food allergies, but things like almond meal are not available where I live, are too expensive to ship, and likely to be confiscated by customs anyway. Thank you!

  18. I’m all over these! I LOVE your superfood snack bites and found those to be a great pre-workout snack, so I’m sure I’m going to go crazy over these!

    Yummmm these look so delicious!! If I do not have any almond meal on hand, what would be an alternative if any? Love your blog so much!! Thank you!!

  20. Michelle says:

    I make a version of these all the time. I do not use the almond meal but a 1/2 cup of unsweetened coconut, sometimes I use all chia, sometimes I use all flax, sometime I mix. I vary my mix ins. Choc chips and dried tart cherries are really yummy. If you use a 1 Tbsp measuring spoon to make your balls, I usually get about 24 per recipe. I always have these in the fridge, they are great when you just need a little something sweet or something to take the edge off before dinner.
