These are naturally sweetened with dates and honey and they’re a great snack anytime of day. They’re seriously so simple to make. You throw all the ingredients into your food processor and blend. Roll into balls and then you’re done. Could it be any easier?

I partnered with Nuts.com for this post and used their dates and dried apple rings. I grew up eating dried apple rings so when I took a bite of one of theirs, it was a blast from the past, in a great way! They’re perfect for these no bake energy bites because unlike fresh apples, they aren’t juicy, and they aren’t as perishable. These energy balls will keep in your fridge for well over a week of healthy snacking, if they last that long!

If you eat one of these energy bites 50% of the time you’re craving a cookie, I’ll bet you’ll end up 5 pounds lighter come January. Please note, “I’ll bet” implies “I’ll bet you ZERO dollars and I hold no responsibility whatsoever for your weight.” Just wanted to clear that up.

Happy (healthy) snacking!

  1. HI,

    Is there anything I could use as a substitute for the dates?

    • The dates are kind of the glue that holds everything together and they also add a lot of natural sweetness. I’ve never made these with anything else so I can’t promise that anything else will work. The closest thing might be dried figs but again, I can’t promise they’ll turn out.

  2. Haha “I’ll bet” you’re right :) I love all things apple cinnamon and these little bites look so perfect for afternoon sweets cravings (maybe I need to replace the candy in the jar on my desk with these!)
