Raw, vegan, paleo apricot cashew energy bites are the perfect no bake protein snack on the go!
*Makes about 25
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!
