Cute Little Granola Poppers Recipe

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.

Granola Poppers

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.
