Paleo Orange Spiced Energy Bites

The subtle hints of orange and cinnamon give these a very unique flavour. And I have both a raw and cooked version for you, depending on your dietary needs.

  • Place pecans and figs in your food processor and pulse until you have a sticky mixture with fine pieces
  • Remove the pecan and fig paste and place in a large mixing bowl 
  • Add cashews and dates to your food processor and process until you have a paste. NOTE: If you have a large food processor (more than 4 cups) you could combine the first 4 ingredients and blend all at once (I have a small food processor so I had to do this in stages)
  • Add the cashew and date paste to your bowl with the pecans and figs
  • Add the remaining ingredients to the bowl and mix well with a spoon or a pastry blender 
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper
  • Form your ingredients into 1 inch balls with your hands and place individual balls on the parchment paper
  • Bake at 350 for 8-9 minutes (until golden on the bottom) 
  • Refrigerate the balls for 1 hour and then enjoy!


NOTE: If you are on a raw diet you can simply skip the cooking step for these and place them in the fridge once you form the balls. They are also delicious this way.
