These energy bites were completely inspired by autumn harvest and holiday ingredients, like pumpkin seeds, apples, and cranberries! Just like any of my previous energy bite recipes, all you will need are the following ingredients and a high speed food processor.
If you need any recommendations on which kitchen essentials to buy, like a food processor, you can head on over to the “Shop” page to check out my shopping recommendations! Just click on any of the links and it will take you directly to my personal recommendation on Amazon!
15 Pitted Medjool Dates
1/2 Cup Soft Dried Apples
1 Cup Dried Cranberries
1/2 Cup Pumpkin Seeds
1/4 Cup Almonds
1/2 Tbsp Cinnamon
1 Tsp Vanilla Extract or Powder
1/2 Cup Shredded Coconut Flakes (Optional)
In a high speed food processor, combine the Dates, Apples, Cranberries, pumpkin seeds, and almonds for about 60-120 seconds, on the highest setting. Add in the cinnamon and vanilla, and pulse for an additional minute, or just until your mixture is thoroughly combined.
Next, take about one tablespoon of the mixture and form it into a ball with your hands. Repeat this process until all of the mixture is formed into shape.
Optional: Roll the energy bites in Shredded coconut flakes until fully coated!
Autumn Daze Energy Bites should stay fresh for approximately 3-5 days when stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
