Almond-Cranberry Energy Bites
These small bites pack a big punch and they do it without gluten, grains, or dairy. They’re a great snack, but even better potluck item during the holiday season. They are a healthier alternative to cookies, but they’re still a sweet treat to be enjoyed in moderation 🙂
ALMOND CRANBERRY ENERGY BITES
(gluten free, grain free, dairy free, vegan)
Prep time: 10 minutes
Total time: 60 minutes
Makes: 12-14 cookies
INGREDIENTS: Use organic whenever possible.
- 1-1/4 cups almond meal (also called almond flour)
- 1/2 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
- 1/4 cup dried cranberries, chopped into small bits
- 1/4 cup grade B maple syrup
- 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
- 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
In a large mixing bowl, stir together all ingredients until they create a sticky dough. Scoop a ping pong ball sized amount of the dough and roll into a ball with your hands. Chill the bites in the fridge on a place for at least 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. After the bites are chilled, place them on a baking sheet and bake for 12 minutes, or until the bottoms begin to brown. Remove from oven and let cool before serving.
Hope you spread some Holiday Cheer with these energy bites.
Lots of Love,
