1 cup raw pumpkin seeds
3/4 cup walnuts
1/4 cup pecans
1 TB cashew butter or almond butter. (I like MaraNatha Raw Organic Almond Butter and Artisana Raw Organic Cashew Butter)
8 Medjool dates
3/4 cup dried cherries
2 TB chia/flax meal. (I make my own by grinding the seeds in a coffee grinder. Beware flavored packaged varieties containing sugar)
3 TB cacao nibs
1 TB maca powder
2 TB coconut oil. (I like Dr. Bronner’s or Spectrum organic)
Sea salt—about 1/8 teaspoon
Use organic ingredients, if possible.
Place all ingredients in a food processor and pulse until smooth. Form balls with one level tablespoon measure and using your hands to round.
Optional: ground pumpkin seeds or dried raspberries and roll the balls in the powder to create a colorful treat. Organic shredded coconut is another option with more of a pronounced taste.
No added sugars or sweeteners. Yields 24 energy snacks
