Apple Cinnamon Energy Bites

Apple Cinnamon Energy Bites

Ingredients

  • 1 cup diced apple slices (150 g)
  • ¾ cup Medjool date paste (180 ml)
  • 2 cups old-fashioned oats (180 g)
  • ¼ cup hemp seed (40 g)
  • ¾ teaspoon ground cinnamon (3 ¼ ml)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (5 ml)
  • pinch salt

Preparation

  1. Begin by dicing the apple slices and spreading them out on a paper towel to remove as much excess moisture as possible. 
  2. Add the remaining ingredients to a mixing bowl. Mix the ingredients together until well combined. Add the apples and stir to evenly distribute.
  3. Measure two tablespoons of the mixture for each ball. NOTE: A medium cookie scoop works well. Place the mixture in your hands and firmly squeeze it into a ball shape. Roll it between the palms of your hands to smooth it out and keep it round.

Serve immediately or refrigerate for up to 2 days in an airtight container.
