Cranberry Energy Bites
- 9 Medjool dates, pitted and cut in quarters
- ⅓ cup agave
- 1 tablespoon almond butter
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds
- 1¼ cup whole grain oats
- ¼ cup pistachios, shelled
- ⅓ cup sliced almonds
- ¾ cup dried cranberries
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- ⅓ cup white chocolate chips
In a food processor with a metal blade, add dates, agave, almond butter, chia seeds, oats, pistachios, almonds, cranberries, and vanilla. Pulse until roughly chopped, but not pulverized.
Place oat mixture into a medium mixing bowl. Add white chocolate chips and stir together. Place in refrigerator and chill for about 20 minutes.
Once chilled, use your hands to shape into 1-inch balls, pressing your hands firmly together to shape. A touch more almond butter can be added to help shape and hold, if necessary. Repeat with remaining mixture.
Note: Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
