Makes about 12 energy bites.
- 1 ½ cup medjool dates * be sure to remove all of the pits
- 1 cup rolled oats
- ½ cup ground flax seed
- 2 tablespoons chia seed
- 2 tablespoons hemp seed
- ¾ cup unsweetened almond butter
- 1 tablespoon blackstrap molasses
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon powdered ginger
- 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
- ¼ teaspoon allspice
- ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
- ¼ teaspoon cloves
- A good pinch of kosher salt (like Diamond Crystal)
Dust off that food processor, and fit it with the S blade. Then put the dates into the bowl of the food processor. Pulse until the dates are chopped into small bits — you don't want to overdo it, or the dates will turn into a big ball of stickiness.
Add the rest of the ingredients.
Pulse until the ingredients are mixed evenly. You may need to stop and even out the ingredients with a spatula from time to time.
Once the ingredients are well incorporated, spoon out a small amount and roll the dough into a little ball. Repeat until all of the dough has been rolled out.
Place the balls onto a small tray and freeze for about 20 minutes. Once they're frozen, you can throw them all into a ziploc bag or container for easy storage.
To enjoy, just remove a couple from the freezer and let them thaw out for a couple of minutes.
