My kids are eating me out of house and home. Non-stop snacking….does it ever stop? They are constantly “starving” especially after having dinner. I don’t get it? Are anyone else’s kids like this?
I decided to make some energy bites to hopefully fill them up and at least slow down the emptying of my pantry every week. These bites are tasty and my daughter loves them! My son is picky and won’t even try one…that’s another battle I need to work on. These snacks are quick and easy to make and taste delicious. The apple and cinnamon really come through and don’t worry, you’ll never know they’re made with dates. I’m going to use the base of this recipe to experiment with other dried fruit.
1/2 cup pitted dates
1 cup dried apples (not freeze dried)
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 tsp cinnamon
In a food processor, combine all the ingredients and process until a thick paste is formed. I had to add a couple tablespoons of water to help move things along. Scoop out tablespoons of the paste and roll into balls. Place in the refrigerator to help keep them together.
