From the day I have started making my own Chai Spice mix, I’ve gone a little crazy! Honestly!! I have been using fresh Chai spice in almost everything from tea, baked goods to french toast and now to energy bites! Yep… Chai Spice Maple Cashew Energy Bites are a thing and they are so very good!

Actually I was inspired by a recipe of Minimalist Baker and then added my own minor changes to suit my taste. And as you might have guessed, the chai spice is my addition and there is no nut butter needed in the recipe. Dates and the maple syrup provide the sweetness and the moisture needed for this recipe.

And there is no need to mention these energy bites or bliss balls as vegan, gluten-free and dairy free. Just perfect for any diet restrictions and a no cook recipe too. If you already have roasted cashews in your kitchen pantry. Do not use the salted cashews though. Just toss the cashews in oven or in your air fryer or simply in the pan. Roast for a couple of minutes until evenly roasted. You have the primary ingredient ready!
