Servings

  • Recipe makes about 1 1/2 dozen energy bites.

Ingredients

  • 12 golden or mission figs
  • 2 Medjool dates pitted
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts (65g/2.2OZ)
  • ½ cup dry old-fashioned oats (45g/1 ½ OZ)
  • 2 Tbs. flax seed ground
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. apple cider vinegar
  • Pinch fine sea salt

Preparation Directions

  • Soak figs and dates in hot water for about 30 minutes, then drain.
  • Trim stems off dates.
  • Add all ingredients to a food processor fitted with the S blade and pulse until ingredients are well mixed and begin to clump.
  • Scrape ingredients into a mixing bowl and then form into walnut-sized balls by scooping the dough with a spoon and rolling it between your hands.
  • You may need to wash your hands every so often for easier rolling – your hands tend to get sticky after rolling 4-6 balls.
  • Enjoy immediately or store in a sealed container in the fridge for up to a week.
