Apple pie energy bites – the perfect healthy fall snack! Vegan, gluten-free, and paleo, easy to make, and naturally date and apple-sweetened.


  • 1/2 cup raw pecans
  • 1/2 cup raw walnuts
  • 1 packed cup dried apple slices (I get them from Trader Joe’s)
  • 1/4 cup pitted Medjool dates (about 3)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/81/4 teaspoon salt 


  1. Make the mixture. Add the ingredients to a food processor and pulse until combined and the mixture begins sticking together. This will take a couple of minutes, so be patient! You may need to scrape the sides down with a spatula occasionally. Add more salt to taste, if necessary.
  2. Roll into balls. Use your hands to form the dough into 12-14 balls (about 1 heaping tablespoon each). Store in the refrigerator or freezer in an airtight container.
