Nancy’s Energy Snacks

Yields 27 Servings
  • 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
  1. Use organic ingredients, if possible.
  2. Place all ingredients in a food processor and pulse until smooth. Form balls with one level tablespoon measure and using your hands to round.
  3. 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.
