You already know I love making a batch of energy balls at the start of the week for easy grab-and-go snacks.

What you don’t know is that these bites are so good that they may not last a week! They lasted exactly 2 days in my 2-person household, so I guess that means they were a hit!

I named them BFF Bites, because Blueberries, Fig, & Flax are a match made in heaven!

Ground flaxseeds, fig spread, Sun Butter, and cacao make up the base.

I used Manitoba Milling Co. Smooth Whole-Milled Flaxseed (Use code “ManitobaFamily” for 25% off at Amazon). This brand is ground super-fine, so it works great in smoothies, too!

Then I stirred in unsweetened dried blueberries, sunflower seeds, and cacao nibs for texture and crunch.

I rolled them into 1-inch balls, and the recipe made about 16 balls.

Refrigerate for at least an hour. These are best served cold, as they soften when they warm up.

These are a perfect treat when you’re looking for something sweet after a meal.

Each ball has 5 grams of protein and only 5 grams of net carbs. They’re packed with Omega-3 fatty acids from the ground flaxseed. They are also gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free, and vegan!

With their ample serving of sunflower seeds, these are a perfect luteal phase snack!
