Recipe ReDux Post # 81 Paleo Friendly Apple Almond Energy Bites

April’s Recipe ReDux theme is “Bars and Bites” and the goal is to create healthy energy bars or bites for snacks, lunch boxes and quick pick me ups. I am trying my hand a Paleo diet lately (in order to investigate some food sensitivities) so I found this a great opportunity to try to create some grain free and dairy free bites as a first. These are very simple to make and require very few ingredients, yet are quite tasty and filling. I hope you try them out and take a look at all the other awesome bite-size recipes created by the talented Recipe ReDux bloggers.  


1 cup of dried apple rings (approximately 15-16 rings)
1/2 cup unsalted almond butter
½ cup unsweetened coconut
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon of salt 
additional coconut to coat (optional)
1 -2 teaspoons of honey or maple syrup (optional, if you like them a bit sweeter)


Combine all the ingredients in a food processor and blend for a few minutes until mostly smooth,  Form into 14 balls and roll in coconut to coat.  Store in an airtight container in the fridge.

Makes 14 bites, 14 servings
