recipe | raw nut and fruit bites

Since being pregnant, I’ve been trying to eat more good protein. Raw nuts are a great source of protein, and mixed together with some dried fruit, I could eat this snack all day long. Bonus? Even Joe likes them (and thinks they’re sweet enough)!
Ingredients
– 3/4 cup raw oats 
– 1/2 cup raw cashews
– 1/2 cup raw almonds
– 2 Tbsp. sunflower seeds
– 2 cups pitted dates
– 1/4 cup almond or cashew butter
– 1/2 cup dried apricots, cherries or raisins
– 1 tsp. cinnamon
 
Directions
1 // Process oats until coarsely chopped, then set aside. 2 // Place all nuts and seeds into processor and chop into small pieces. Remove and add to oats. 3 // Add dates and almond (or cashew) butter to processor and blend well until combined. 4 // Add dates and almond butter mixture to bowl of oats and nuts. 5 // Add nuts and fruit (you may have to use the food processor to chop fruit) to mixture and combine with [clean] hands. 6 // Roll into balls and serve.
I’m not one to usually snack on raw fruit and nuts (just ask my family). But this recipe is truly scrumptious with the perfect combination of sweet, nuts and a subtle tartness (maybe from the apricots?)
Do you have a favorite raw snack food recipe? I’d love if you’d share (especially if it’s protein-dense)!

    And then you should dip them in a mixture of dark chocolate and coconut oil. 🙂 I'll have to try this recipe sometime.

    Delicious and healthy – what's more to ask for? 🙂 I always eat yoghurt with frozen raspberrys which then tastes like ice cream.

    Just my type of snack! Look/sound delish enough to serve at a casual at-home party, too. 🙂

    You could add raw pumpkin seeds and Brazil nuts (crushed), both of which are great sources of zinc! These look good!

    Rebecca, I made these for during and after my labor, for myself and especially those helping me. They're great! I dipped them in chocolate too.
