No-Bake Thunder Noms

Inspired by "No-Bake Cranberry Nut Energy Bites" on Blue Zones.

Ingredients

  • 9 Medjool dates, pitted and cut into quarters
  • 1/3 cup agave
  • 1 tbsp almond butter
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 1/4 cup whole-grain oats
  • 1/4 cup pistachios, shelled
  • 1/3 cup sliced almonds
  • 3/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup white chocolate chips

Directions

1. In a food processor with a metal blade, add dates, agave, almond butter, chia seeds, oats, pistachios, almonds, cranberries, and vanilla. Pulse until roughly chopped, but not pulverized.

2. Place oat mixture into a medium mixing bowl. Add white chocolate chips and stir together. Place in refrigerator and chill for 20 minutes.

3. Once chilled, shape into 1-inch balls, pressing hands firmly together. A touch more almond butter can be added to help shape and hold, if necessary. Repeat with remaining mixture.

Note: Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.

Yield: 12 bites.
