Filled with apple cinnamon flavor these healthy Apple Pie Larabar Balls are the perfect portable snack.
Monday Funday! <— This is such a joke my computer wouldn’t even let me type it. It kept autocorrecting Funday to Sunday. Of course I know that Mondays are usually never Fundays, but I’m taking the “fake it ’til you make it approach” — drinking a huge mug of coffee and pretending it’s going to be a fun Monday.
You know what is fun? Grease Live. Did you watch? It was cute, but it felt a little too modern. I guess I’m a classic girl. I did love the Boyz II Men appearance though. If you didn’t watch, read this recap. It’s hilarious and I have to agree that Zac Efron should have been Danny.
Another fun thing = BALLS!! And I have yet another Larabar ball recipe for you.
I would say that this is my favorite Larabar ball flavor, because they’re filled with cinnamon and apple goodness — two of my absolutely favorite flavors — but I simply can’t choose. I don’t have kids but I imagine that picking your favorite Larabar flavor is like picking a favorite child. It’s impossible, because they’re all special in their own way and you love them equally. Did I take that too far?
So I’m not going to say that this one is my favorite, but I will say that it’s darn good! You simply can’t go wrong with apple pie flavored things… am I right?
If you like apple pie and cinnamon flavored things you’ll go crazy for these balls. Trust me.
Apple Pie Larabar Balls
- 1 1/2 cups almonds
- 1/2 cup pecans
- 3/4 cup medjool dates (about 10), pitted
- 1/2 cup dried apple slices
- 1/2 cup raisins
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- pinch of sea salt
- Place almonds and pecans into food processor and pulse until they are chopped into small pieces. Place nut mixture in a bowl and set aside.
- Put dates into the food processor and pulse until a paste forms (the dates will probably form into a sticky ball).
- Add nuts back into the processor with the dates.
- Add in dried apples, raisins, cinnamon and sea salt. Pulse until everything is well combined.
- Scoop dough from food processor* and form into small balls using your hands.
- Place balls into a sealed storage container and store in the fridge (for 1-2 weeks) or freezer (for 1-2 months).
