Pistachio Cranberry Energy Bites

22 Comments

Need a homemade snack idea your family will love?

Energy bites are yummy no bake treats made with oats and nut butter that can be customized with your family’s individual tastes. These Pistachio Cranberry Energy Bites are SO YUMMY and were super quick to make using a food processor. I love that they are portable and can be conveniently  taken anywhere or packed in lunches.

Pistachio Cranberry Energy Bites

Adapted from the book Energy Balls by Christal Sczebel

Ingredients:
Directions:

1.) Place all ingredients in a food processor and turn on for about a minute or until pretty smooth. Add a little more water if needed.

2.) Roll out teaspoon sized balls on a cookie sheet. Freeze until firm, then enjoy! That’s it! SO EASY

This batch made about 18 balls. Using a recipe nutritional calculator they came in at about 130 calories per ball.
 

Note: You can definitely use other dried fruits as the original recipe called for dried pears and dates instead of pineapple and cranberries. I knew my kids wouldn’t eat the dates so I just substituted with ones they would! 😊 I also have used peanut butter instead of cashew butter, and I’m sure you could use whichever type of nut butter works for you.

    The picture showed candied ginger, not ground.

      I see dried pineapple and ground ginger (top spoon)

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      It’s dried pineapple in the bowl and ground ginger in the spoon.

    These are all of my latest favorite finds at Aldi! My family has been loving trail mix lately, and Aldi has the best prices. Love it when the kids want the dried pineapple more than candy. Fantastic! 🙂

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Awesome! I wish I had Aldi – enjoy!

    For those who aren’t handy in the kitchen, they make these called organic “figgy pops” by made in nature. I buy them at Costco in 20oz bags. I don’t think I can make them for the price I pay. Has cranberries, apricots, dates, pistachios, power seeds and coconut. Really great. Looks like a lot of fun to make and a great idea. Thank you

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Sounds yum! I’ll look for those next time 👍

  12. Terry Yarbrough

    What can I use instead of a food processor?

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Maybe a high powered blender? Or at least chop the nuts finely?
