CBD Snack Recipe: Ginger-orange CBD energy bites!
by Ashley Ballard
We’re starting the summer off with a CBD snack recipe that’s sure to give your body all the good stuff you need to jump-start the new season healthy and happy.
This post is a part of our recipe series. We’ve partnered with talented bakers, chefs, and bartenders to bring you unique and adventurous CBD oil recipes you can make at home.
While we’ll always leave room in our diets for the occasional eggnog or Old Fashioned, these energy bite CBD snacks are something we predict we’ll be making again and again to snack on throughout the year. If you’re not familiar with energy bites, think granola bar meets cookie dough; they have all of the health benefits of granola with the rich texture of cookie dough, rolled into perfect bite-sized snacks. Energy bites make a great pick-me-up throughout the day or work well as a light breakfast with your morning coffee.
For this recipe, we partnered with Kate, a talented pastry chef in Omaha who’s worked at some of the best restaurants, bakeries, and coffee shops in town. She worked her magic on these energy bites to create a fresh and fruity recipe, and we dare you not to eat them all in one sitting.
“These energy bites have all the good stuff you'd like in the morning from a bowl of oatmeal, but when you add the zesty orange oil and fresh ginger, they're exceptional at any time of day and something special to look forward to,” says Kate.
