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.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Place pecans and figs in your food processor and pulse until you have a sticky mixture with fine pieces

  2. Remove the pecan and fig paste and place in a large mixing bowl 

  3. 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)

  4. Add the cashew and date paste to your bowl with the pecans and figs

  5. Add the remaining ingredients to the bowl and mix well with a spoon or a pastry blender 

  6. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper

  7. Form your ingredients into 1 inch balls with your hands and place individual balls on the parchment paper

  8. Bake at 350 for 8-9 minutes (until golden on the bottom) 

  9. Refrigerate the balls for 1 hour and then enjoy!

Recipe Notes

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.
