Oatmeal-Date Energy Bites

1 cup old fashioned rolled oats (not quick-cooking)

1/2 cup shredded, sweetened coconut

1/2 cup raw, whole almonds

1/2 cup raw, whole pecans

1/2 cup whole dates, cut into 3 pieces each (I use kitchen shears)

1/4 cup agave

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

1 teaspoon vanilla


Combine everything in the bowl of a food processor. Process until everything is mixed together and is a uniform consistency, it will be thick and stiff. Use a tiny cookie scoop (or make rounded teaspoon-fulls) to scoop the mixture (level it using the edge of the bowl), and roll it into balls with your hands. Store in the refrigerator or freezer.


Makes about 42 energy bites.
