Ingredients in Cranberry Apple Energy Balls
Just four ingredients are needed for this easy energy ball recipe. And even better? There are quite a few flavor variations you can make!
Here's what I used:
This recipe calls for dried apples. I have only tried using the Bare crunchy apple chips and freeze dried apples from Trader Joes. Although I have not tested soft dried apples, I assume they would work.
If you want this recipe to be 100% Paleo and Whole30 approved, then make sure to use dried cranberries that are only sweetened with apple juice. THIS is the brand I recommend.
Feel free to sub with various dried fruit, nuts and seeds. For instance, swap the pecans for almonds or the cranberries for raisins.
In addition, add-ins like cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla are a great way to bring even more flavor to this simple apple energy ball recipe.
How to Make Cranberry Apple Energy Bites
These Whole30 energy bites are made in a food processor and are literally the easiest thing you'll ever make!
First, combine all the ingredients in your food processor. Blend until the mixture starts to clump.
Next, roll the mixture into balls, each about 1 tablespoon in size.
And that's it! The balls are ready to eat after they've been rolled.
How to Store Paleo Energy Balls
These energy balls store best in the fridge, but can be kept in the freezer as well. Place them in an air-tight container or baggie and keep up to two weeks in the fridge.
