I decided not to call these energy balls…anyways, I made these easy little balls as a simple snack / healthy to-go breakfast / mad science experiment / ect.
6 dried dates (pitted)
about 8 dried apricots (I forgot to count the exact number)
1 oz snack size box of raisins
1/3 cup unsalted almonds
1/3 cup unsalted sunflower seeds
Throw everything in a food processor and pulse until ingredients stick together in a ball when molded. Then roll all the ingredients into balls and enjoy. These store well wrapped in wax paper since they can be a little sticky.
These are really easy to make and really healthy. You can adjust the recipe to your taste just be sure to keep a good ratio of dried fruit to dry ingredients to keep them together. I probably will cut down on the raisins next time, but I’m not a fan of raisins normally.
Super healthy, gluten-free, no added sugar, raw food, vegan, paleo. Gosh, what other diet buzzwords can I use here? Whatever, they’re healthy and taste good.
I guess it was only a matter of time before a blog called Fortress of Crunchitude posted a recipe for granola. Except it’s chewy not crunchy! Fortress of Chewitude…maybe I should’ve called them energy balls.
