No Bake At Its Finest

One of my favorite fall desserts is apple pie. So if you’re anything like me, you are going to love these little energy balls because that’s just what they taste like! I created this recipe so I could enjoy that apple pie flavor without the effort that goes into making an actual pie. Also they’re dairy free, gluten free, paleo and SCD diet friendly!

Ingredients for Easy Apple Pie Energy Balls

Dried Apples: The dried apples are what gives these energy balls their apple flavor! You should be able to find them in your grocery store’s dried fruit section or online.

Medjool Dates: Dates are a key ingredient in many energy ball recipes. They provide the hold that keeps these balls together. See the tips below if your dates seem dry.

Pecans: I use pecans in this recipe but you could try using walnuts instead. 

Honey: Honey is a great sweetener for energy balls. You could also use maple syrup instead if your diet allows.

Vanilla Extract: Just a hint of vanilla flavoring in this recipe.

Nutmeg, Cinnamon, Sea Salt: The spices in this energy ball recipe is what bring out the apple pie flavor.

How To Make Energy Balls

  1. In a high powered blender or food processor, add the dried apples, medjool dates and pecans. Blend on high until the apples, dates and pecans are broken into small pieces and stick together. 
  2. Next, add the rest of the ingredients and pulse until everything is well combined.
  3. Form the dough into small balls using a small cookie scoop or your hands. If the dough is too sticky to handle, try putting the dough in the freezer for 10 minutes to firm them up.

What if your dates are dry?

You may notice if your dates are dry these bites have a harder time sticking together when you roll them into a ball. Make sure to soften your dates before blending them to prevent this. To do this, I soak my dates in hot water for about 10 minutes and then drain the excess water. Then add the rehydrated dates into the blender and proceed with the recipe as normal.

What should I call these?

Honestly the amount of names energy balls go by these days can get a little confusing. You might hear them referred to as things like energy bites, protein balls, bliss balls, or power balls. But for this recipe let’s just call them energy balls.

How To Store Energy Balls

You can store the energy balls in an airtight container for up to a week in the refrigerator. They can be stored in the freezer for about 1 month.
