Apple Energy Bites

 

APPLE and WALNUT ENERGY BITES! You guys said more snacks, and whats a better snack then something sweet that you can quickly grab and go! This recipe is made with delicious Aussie Apples, which are AMAZING as a snack by themselves, but even better in energy balls for the added texture! These are Gluten Free, Dairy free and Absolutely delicious!

Makes: 12-14 balls (depending on size)
Ingredients:
- 1.5 cups of walnuts
- 1 tablespoon vanilla essence 
- 1/4 cup almond meal 
- 1 cup dried apricots 
- 1 apple, cored
- 1.5 cups of desiccated coconut
- 1/4 cup water 
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup

Directions: 
1. Place walnuts, apple, vanilla essence, maple, water, almond meal, half of the coconut and dried apricots into a food processor.  
2. Blend this mixture for 2-3 minutes or until it has come together. 
3. Take a small about of this mixture into the palm of your hand and roll into a small
ball. 
4. Repeat until all the mixture is gone! 
5. Roll each ball in the remaining desiccated coconut. 
6. Leave in the fridge for 30 minutes before eating! These can last up to a week in the fridge (if they last that long in your house....certainly not mine!!)

  • Can a type of nut replace protein powder in the “protein” balls recipe?

  • If I leave out the dried apricots, will I lose the “moistness” (if that is even a word) or should I add more apple &/or maple syrup to it. Can I substitute maple or golden syrup if I don’t have any? Apple Energy Bites. Thanks x

  • Just checking is it a cup of dried apples rather than apricots?

  • Sounds delicious!!! Just wanted to know what you do with the maple syrup? I can see it in the ingredients but not in the directions. Thank you!
