Description

These healthy apple pie energy balls are made with almonds, pecans, dates, apples, raisins and cinnamon. They’re the perfect portable snack.


Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  1. Process nuts: 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.
  2. Process dates: Put dates into the food processor and pulse until a paste forms (the dates will probably form into a sticky ball).
  3. Add nuts back into the processor with the dates.
  4. Add in dried apples, raisins, cinnamon and sea salt. Pulse until everything is well combined.
  5. Form balls: Scoop dough from food processor with your hands or a cookie scoop and form into small balls using your hands.
  6. To store: Place balls into a sealed storage container and store in the fridge for 1 weeks or the freezer for 3 months.

Notes

  • Hard/dry dates: If your dates are hard and dry, you can soak them in warm water for 10-15 minutes to soften. Just drain them well before using.
  • Crumbly dough: If your dough seems too crumbly to stick together after processing even when squeezing it together with your hands, you can try adding a couple more dates or adding 1 teaspoon of water at a time until the mixture starts to hold together well enough to form into balls.
