Trail Mix Energy Bites 

Ingredients

  • ½ cup each:
    • rolled oats 
    • cashews (raw, unsalted)
    • pumpkin seeds (raw, unsalted)
  • ½ cup raisins 
  • 2 tablespoons almond butter, creamy 
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup 
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla 
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon 
  •  Pinch of salt 
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil, melted 
  • Optional: shredded coconut flakes 

Instructions 

  1. In a high-speed blender or food processor, combine the oats, cashews, and pumpkin seeds. Blend until a smooth powder forms. 
  2. Add the raisins, almond butter, maple syrup, cinnamon, salt, and vanilla to the blender. Blend until well combined. This will form a sticky dough-like mixture.  
  3. Transfer mixture to a large mixing bowl. Drizzle coconut oil over top, stirring to combine. At this point, your mixture should be ready to form into balls. If needed, add additional coconut oil. 
  4. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Spoon 1 tablespoon of dough into hands and roll into a ball, about the size of a golf ball. Place on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat until entire mixture is used, making approximately 12 balls. Option to roll each in coconut flakes for added deliciousness! 
  5. Transfer the baking sheet to the refrigerator and let sit for at least 20 minutes before enjoying! Store in an airtight container.
