Apple Pie Energy Snacks (no bake)

Wednesday, April 24, 2013



Twit.  That's a funny word right?  I was called that by an anonymous commenter the other day and it made me laugh.  Who even says that word ha!?  On another note, teething is basically the worst thing ever.  It is taking over Ronin's life and he is not sleeping one bit. The poor little guy wants to chew the heck out of whatever is in mouth range and I am pretty sure people think I am starving him when he starts trying to eat the grocery cart.  I mean really, 6 teeth at once seems a little extreme right?  So I am typing this post as fast as I can because I know in about 10 minutes I am going to hear a screaming baby who needs his Momma.

So let's get to these weird looking little snacks.  Do not judge them based on how they look because they seriously taste like bites of apple pie heaven and are packed full of good for you energy boosting ingredients.  They are also super easy to make and take only about 5 minutes to make start to finish.
 

What you will need:
  • 1 cup of pitted dates
  • 1/2 an apple (use whatever kind is your favorite)
  • 1 tsp of cinnamon 
  • 1/3 cup of whole roasted flax seeds
  • 1/2 tsp of vanilla
  • 1/2 cup of almonds
  • 1 tbs of melted coconut oil
Directions:
  1. Throw everything into a food processor and blend until all the ingredients are able to stick together and you have a thick chunky dough like consistency. 
  2. Form little balls of the mixture and place on a parchment lined cookie sheet.
  3. Keep them in your fridge until you are ready to eat.  You can also eat them at room temperature but I like these best super cold.  
My husband said these were, "dank-ilicious."  Ya he really did say that ha!  Please come back and let me know what you think if you make them!

They look like raw meatballs ;) LOL. I will take your advice and not judge them based on looks! I think I might roll them in coconut. Thanks!

Jess said...

Yum!!!! Are the flaxseeds whole or ground? I assume I can just toast them like I do coconut - in the oven or on the stovetop?

Lindsay @ Delighted Momma said...

Jess- they are whole roasted. Thanks for noticing that I made the correction above.

An amber teething necklace will help A LOT with teething and the drooling :)

These sound amazing! I am not doing much flaxseeds these days though, so would you have any suggestions for a substitution? Thanks! Toni

Rose said...

These look delicious!
I know how you feel about teething, my 11 month old is teething too, I think he's getting four teeth in at once :(. Poor little guys. Hopefully their teeth will break through quickly and we all can get some-what better rest :).

I can't believe someone said that. Incredibly rude of them. These look really good!

Wow that's it?!? I would literally make this right now if only I had the dates!! :(( They do look dank-ilicious haha!!

Sarah said...

Haha Twit? That is pretty funny. Doesn't sound like they were being nice though. Oh, and yes teething sucks. Sean is doing the same right now. He has 4 teeth with 3 more on the way. Our poor little men =(

Cynthia said...

Yum! Can't wait to try these. Always love when you post paleo recipe ideas :)

Alexa said...

First of all someone called you a twit?? What the heck? So unnecessary and just weird! Second, so sorry about little Ronin! Mila's whole first year was consumed with getting all of her teeth. Finally after she was done I was like...oh my gosh, you are a happy fun little kid after all! Ha. These look delish...perfect for an always starving pregnant lady! :)

Hanna said...

I will Try these for sure! Thanks for the recipe:)

curlygirlpress said...

Oh, poor Ronin! My little got 6 in within a month and (fingers crossed on the next ones)weathered the storm pretty well beyond a slight fever and lots of chewing. He was just under 6 months though so perhaps he didn't know he was supposed to flip out. Hope they come thru quickly! = )

Brittany Kyte said...

What meanie would call you a twit?? I shared one of your posts with my husband the other (the cocoa & honey facial) and then he started roaming your paleo recipes! We are going to try to key lime pie bites because they sound fantastic!

Tammy said...

What is WRONG with people? A "twit"? Seriously? Anyway, these apple snacks look amazing. Do they taste anything like the Lara bars (I think it's apple pie)? Because if so, they are delicious! LOVE your recipes!

I dont believe they are 5 minutes from start to finish. How long did it REALLY take you? Measuring, assembling, clean up etc?

Lindsay @ Delighted Momma said...

Anonymous- 5 minutes :) I never include cleanup time in my recipes but thanks for checking.

Lindsay said...

YUM :) Love a good healthy snack!

Lindsay @ Delighted Momma said...

Toni- you could always use chia seeds instead :)

lauren brimley said...

Those sound so awesome! I plan on making them this weekend!

Danielle said...

whole roasted flax seeds - how long do you roast yours for (at what temp) and is the difference just in taste or health properties?

Lindsay @ Delighted Momma said...

Danielle- I buy them whole roasted. In my opinion the roasted ones are so muh better tasting.

Danielle said...

Thanks :) I attempted to roast mine once for one of your recipes and i must have had the heat too high because they were popping on the pan!

Chiquis Jewell said...

yummy!! I'm so glad these ones do not contain organic pb because I am allergic to it!! Thanks for sharing it!!

City Chick said...

Yum!! I am so happily suprised by how delicious these are. Great recipe. Thanks so much!

I like the fact that they don't have to be baked. Sometimes it's good to just have a healthy snack that can be prepared and eaten without cooking. Bit of raw food is good every now and again.

I don't have the flax seeds but I do have the other ingredients. I could probably substitute some other seeds or nuts for the flax.

Anything Dank-ilicious sounds good to me!

Just made these, and they're delicious! Very nutty, sweet and satisfying. Great blog!

jennifer smith said...

If chia is used to replace the flax, do you still have to roast them? I've never heard of roasted chia seeds, but just wondering if it would make a difference if they weren't.

jennifer smith said...

If I substitute chia for the flax, does it still need to be roasted? I have never heard of roasted chia, but just wondering.

Patricia Poritzky said...

I substituted chia for flax, didn't roast. Recipe total time 10 minutes including rolling. Made a graham cracker crumb crust in the quisenart and rolled balls into it. Everyone in the family loved them! Great recipe! You rock!

Does anyine know how many calories amd carbs in one ball

Chrissy Doucet said...

So so so good! I did regular ground flax and rolled mine in coconut, oh and I added raw cacao nibs

Rachel said...

Hi Lindsay, thanks for sharing this awesome recipe. Can't wait to try this.

Cheesesticks coupons said...

Thanks for sharing this recipe. One question: I don't have raw flex seeds but can I substitute some other seeds for the flax?

rebecca said...

Looks so yummy. Can't wait to have them :) I plan on making them this weekend!
