Cranberry Orange Coconut Energy Bites
"Been obsessing over these Energy Bites all weekend! Dried cranberries, orange juice/zest, flaked coconut, toasted oats, a few dates, maple syrup, and @justins vanilla almond butter (only my fave nut butter of all time)."
-- @heart.and.stove

1 cup rolled oats
2 tbsp chia seeds
1/4 cup Deglet Noor dates (about 6 dates)
1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1/2 cup dried cranberries
pinch of kosher salt
1/2 cup nut butter (I prefer Justin's Vanilla Almond Butter, but plain almond or peanut butter works, too!)
2 tbsp maple syrup
zest & juice of 1 orange
1/2 tsp vanilla extract


In a skillet set over medium heat, toast oats till lightly golden and aromatic, stirring frequently, about 5 minutes.

Combine oats, chia seeds, dates, coconut, cranberries, salt, nut butter, maple syrup, orange zest/juice, and vanilla extract in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse till combined, making sure to scrape the sides of the bowl with a spatula if necessary.

Using your hands, roll mixture into 1.5 inch balls. If the mixture is too dry or crumbly to roll into balls, pulse 1 tablespoon of water at a time into the mixture until it is moist enough to roll into balls. Chill in a single layer in the refrigerator at least 1 hour or until firm. Transfer to an airtight container and store in the refrigerator up to 1 week.
