These bites are so good, healthy and ready in a few minutes! They make a nutritious breakfast, a healthy snack or a nice treat. They are a favorite in my family.
Recipe adapted from Dr Greger's How not to die cookbook".
3/4 cup pitted dated, soaked in hot water for 10 minutes, then drained
3/4 cups nuts - I use cashews but walnuts or pecans will do
3/4 cups dried fruit - I use cranberries but you may use apricots, apple slices
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
2 tbsp chia seeds
2 tbsp ground flaxseeds
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
In a food processor, combine dates and nuts until well incorporated.
Add remaining ingredients and process until well combined. The mixture will be sticky.
Roll a tablespoon of the mixture into a 1-inch ball and place on a plate that you will cover with foil and refrigerate.
Store in the refrigerator until you are ready to enjoy them.
* I rolled mine in unsweetened shredded coconut.
