Pecan Pie Energy Bites

  1 rater(s)

If you love pecan pie and snacks then you clicked on the right recipe. These energy balls are both filling and filled with incredibly healthy ingredients, four simple ingredients to be exact. Just reach into your pantry and retrieve pecans, sea salt, alcohol-free vanilla extract, and Medjool dates. 

While we encourage people to use Medjool dates, you can use whichever date variety you can get your hands on. Just make sure that the dates are moist and pitted prior to adding them to the food processor. If you cannot find moist dates, you can soak them in water for 30 minutes prior to blending. Make sure to use raw pecans with no added oil or salt, as you will add sea salt to this recipe. It complements the sweetness of the dates and enhances the nuttiness of the pecans. 

Once you blend all of the ingredients together in the food processor and you achieve a dough-like consistency, it’s time to make the energy bites. To avoid the mixture sticking to your hands, wet your hands with water prior to forming tablespoon-sized balls. You should also line a container or baking sheet with parchment paper, so that the pecan energy bites don’t stick. Place in the freezer for about one to two hours and then you are ready to enjoy them! Let us know how you like this recipe in the comments below.
