Apple Cinnamon Bites
These bites are not only filled with long lasting quality “energetic” ingredients like oats, dates, coconut oil and apples, but they are also high in fiber and gluten-free. They make a great snack to take to school and are ideal for a breakfast on the go!
1⅓ Cups Dates
½ Cup Navitas Naturals Hemp Seeds (ground)
½ tsp ground Cinnamon
2 Tbsp Flax Oil or Coconut Oil
½ Cup dried Apple Pieces, coarsely chopped
⅔ Cup Oat Flakes
2 Tbsp Apple Butter or Honey
Roll in crushed sunflower, hemp or pumpkin seeds
Place dates in food processor and blend until you form a thick paste. Place in a large bowl and stir in the ground hemp seeds, ground cinnamon, dried fruit, oil and apple butter using a fork or your hands to combine and add oats last. Form into small balls by the teaspoon-full. After rolling in sunflower, hemp or pumpkin seeds, place in a container and refrigerate or freeze – they taste great right from the freezer.
