Fall Recipe Roundup Part Two

Paleo, vegan, and clean eating recipes perfect for fall weather.

  

Well, it’s my favorite time of year again! I’ve got long sleeves on, I’m drinking a pumpkin chai latte with almond milk, and I’m looking out over the tops of the trees in my neighborhood as they change from green to yellow (in a very trendy ombre way, I must say!). Time for boots, long sweaters, crisp mornings, and comfort food! Here are some of my favorite recipes to warm you up this season!

Apricot Cashew Energy Bites

Raw, vegan, paleo apricot cashew energy bites are the perfect no bake protein snack on the go!

  

You know I love these! No explanation needed if you’re familiar with the sea salt, fig and pistachio or white chocolate macadamia nut ones! 

*Makes about 25

Ingredients:

1 cup almonds

3/4 cup dates, pitted

1 and 1/2 cup cashews

1 tsp cinnamon

3 Tbsp honey

1/2 cup Dried apricots 

A pinch of sea salt

Place almonds, cashews and apricots into a food processor and pulse until they’re the consistency of crumbly sand (not quite as fine as almond meal). Add the dates, honey, sea salt and cinnamon to the ground almonds. Pulse until the ingredients start to cling together and form clumps. 

Form mixture into bite sized balls, a little more than a Tbsp size. You can use your hands, or I have a silicone cookie scoop (kind of like this one) that I spray with coconut oil non stick spray, and pack the mixture into. If it seems crumbly at first and doesn’t stick together, keep working with it, the warmth of your hands will heat the honey and dates up to help it stick together.  

Place on a piece of parchment and continue until you’re out of the mixture!

These will keep in an air tight container at room temperature for 7 days, in the refrigerator for a month, and in the freezer for 6 months! Enjoy!
