This is a fantastic snack to take when you're exercising and you need that little energy boost to keep you going! Tested on an 8 day hike this summer!
⅔ c cashew butter
⅓ c tahini
¾ c dates
½ c water
1 c rice flour
2 tbsp honey
1 c dried cranberries
½ c candied orange peel pieces
1 c almonds
1 c cashew pieces
¾ c dessicated coconut
½ c pumpkin seeds
½ c sunflower seeds
1/3 c sesame seeds
1/3 c flax seeds
Pinch of salt
Put almonds in blender or food processor and process until roughly chopped.
Combine all dry ingredients in large bowl.
Meanwhile, soak dates in 1/2 cup of water for 15 minutes. Blend until smooth to make a date puree.
Combine date puree with other wet ingredients in a separate bowl.
Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and stir through.
Use hands to shape mix into balls and place in a container with lid.
Store in a cool place or in the refrigerator.
OPTIONAL: Bake energy balls for 10 minutes at 350*F. This gives them a richer, nuttier flavour.
VARIATIONS: Add chocolate chips, or substitute your favourite dried fruits or nuts.
Wheat free, dairy free, and delicious!
