These little sweet treats are super tasty, and of course, all good stuff! Perfect for a quick snack on the go, and kid friendly too! They are no bake and quick to make. These are 30 Day Reset approved as well, so no guilt here. :-)
Ingredients for this recipe:
-1 cup pitted dates
-2 cups dried apple rings (the chewy ones)
-1/4 cup cashews
-1/4 cup pumpkin seeds (pepitas!)
-2 Tablespoons coconut oil
-1 and a half teaspoons cinnamon
-1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
-pinch of sea salt
Start with adding the dates and apple rings to a food processor.
Blend for a minute or so to break the fruit down. Then add all other ingredients. Pumpkin seeds are sometimes called "pepitas", so if you see that on a label, those are pumpkin seeds! They look like this (below - although this package is just labeled pumpkin seeds). Pumpkin seeds are loaded with fiber and also a decent amount of protien, so they are a great choice to add to recipes or sprinkle on a salad.
Blend all ingredients together in food processor until well blended. Next, form small balls out of mixture and place on a clean surface. Once done, you can eat them right away, or let them sit in the fridge for an hour or so first. They store well in an airtight container in fridge for at least one week.
