1 cup, Unsulfured dried apple rings
9 dates, Medjool Dates or 1 cup pitted dates
1/2 cup Almonds (Raw)
2 tablespoons Almond Butter
1/2 tbsp, Spices, cinnamon, ground
1/4 tsp, Spices, nutmeg, ground
1 (140g), Gala Apple - Small (157g)
1/8 tsp, Salt
1/4 cup, Rolled Oats
2 tbsp, Granola
1/4 cup, sliced, Almonds
1 tbsp, Coconut Sugar
1 scoop (41g), Vanilla Protein Powder
Soak dates in hot water for 10-15 minutes to soften, then drain.
Add dates, apple rings, almonds, almond butter, cinnamon, nutmeg, protein powder, and chopped apple to a food processor and process for 1-3 minutes, scraping the sides of the food processor with a spatula as needed.
You should have a sticky but mostly smooth batter.
Scoop the batter out into a bowl and using a tablespoon measure, scoop a slightly smaller than golf ball sized portion and roll into a ball using the palms of your hands. It sometimes helps to have slightly wet hands if the batter is extra sticky.
Once you have made a little ball, roll the ball into the coating of choice (oats, granola, crushed almonds, etc.), and place the ball on a cookie sheet covered in wax/parchment paper.
Do this with the rest of the batter to make around 14 balls.
