If there’s any food category with tons of variety, it must be desserts. There are many recipes, and more go viral every day as people experiment further.

Still, many people aren’t that familiar with energy-boosting desserts. And that’s probably because “energy” usually isn’t the first thing people think about when weighing dessert options.

Keep in mind that there’s a difference between desserts that particularly boost your energy and healthy desserts. Basically, an energy-boosting dessert may not necessarily have healthier ingredients. However, the desserts in this post are not just healthy but will also replenish your energy.

With that said, let’s show you some exciting desserts that pack enough punch to power you through your day.

1.    Chocolate Cookie Energy Bites

Chocolate is super nutritious, no doubt. We’re talking about dark chocolate specifically, which is packed with minerals that go beyond boosting energy.

The source of minerals in dark chocolate is cocoa, and it’s loaded with fiber, magnesium, copper, iron, manganese, selenium, to name a few. However, the real deal is the stimulants theobromine and caffeine as they have energy-boosting capabilities.

Now, for the cookie you’re going to make, you need chopped-up pieces of dark chocolate — only as much as is necessary. You also need peanut butter, which is good for energy due to its fiber and protein content.

Other ingredients are honey, cocoa powder, flaxseed, and oats. And with that, you’re mostly done since there’s no baking. Mix everything inside a bowl and mold the mixture into shapes you prefer.

2.    White Chocolate Energy Bites

If you’re not a fan of dark chocolate, don’t despair, you still have another “chocolatey” option. Give White Chocolate Energy Bites a try. While it’s not as healthy a dessert as the first one, it has a decent range of nutritional value. Most of all, it’ll feel like an energy shot.

What do you need to make these energy bites?

Well, a bit of everything as nothing is particularly as essential as the white chocolate itself. So really, your creativity is free to wander.

The recipe calls for different fruits, seeds, and nuts for the toppings. Once you have your toppings all set, melt the chocolate in an oven and when it cools, scoop it onto a piece of parchment and go to work decorating the pieces of chocolate with the toppings and letting them dry.

If you’d like a list of ingredients to go with, here you go:

Fruits

  • Mangoes (king of fruits with tons of vitamins, folate, and proteins to give you that energy boost)
  • Pineapple
  • Blueberries
  • Apples
  • Dates
  • Dried figs

Seeds and Nuts

  • Pecans
  • Almonds
  • Peanuts
  • Pumpkin
  • Hazelnuts

3.    Cannabis Chocolate Chip Cookies

If you’re not a weed person, you likely haven’t heard of the classic cannabis-infused chocolate chip cookies.

This dessert recipe is pretty much the same good old chocolate chip cookie, delicious and gooey. However, it comes with an additional ingredient, cannabis, loaded with health benefits, including energy replenishment.

Studies into marijuana’s cannabinoids have revealed many medicinal properties. A recent report on CBD showed that it could boost energy and focus.

Chocolate chip cookies are easy to prepare, but you may not know how to infuse them with cannabis. The best infusion medium you need is cannabutter, a popular ingredient in many marijuana edibles.

The ingredients for your infused chocolate chip cookies include:

  • Eggs
  • Cannabutter
  • White sugar
  • Various toppings of your choice (nuts, chocolate chips, etc.)
  • Flour
  • Baking powder
  • Salt
  • Vanilla

Preparing chocolate chip cookies is straightforward.

Mix the cannabutter inside a big bowl along with sugar and the eggs. Whisk the flour and other dry ingredients and add them into the mixture in the big bowl. Gently beat the mixture into a thick dough and add the chocolate chips at the end. Now, mold cookie shapes out of the dough once it’s ready.

Finally, bake your cookies in a preheated oven at 375°F for about ten minutes and take them out to cool.

Alternatively, you can prepare non-chocolate, Cannabis-Infused Junk Food Cookies that are equally good. Veriheal has a detailed recipe.


Conclusion

Are you used to making desserts that only cater to your taste buds? Well, desserts can be a lot more than delicious because they are flexible and can accommodate whatever you need. The ones we’ve shared with you will replenish your energy reservoir and keep you going throughout the day.
