I wanted to share with you this fun, delicious, raw cookie/trail mix ball recipe!
They make a great snack or healthy school lunch treat.
Despite the lengthy dry ingredient list, they are a breeze to throw together. Plus, how hard is it to throw seeds into a bowl?
Raw, Chewy Trail Mix Recipe
10 pitted dates
1/4 cup almonds
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 cup pumpkin (pepita seeds)
2 tbsp chia seeds
2 tbsp bee pollen (optional)
2 tbsp shredded coconut
Pinch of sea salt
Pinch of cinnamon
If you are feeling fancy, add some cacao nibs!
Place pitted dates and almonds in a food processor (or blender, vitamix works great for this) until the mixture is ground up. You can cleave a few larger pieces if you prefer.
Remove the mixture/paste from the processor and place into a medium sized bowl.
Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well with your hands.
Form into mini cookies or balls (this makes about 10 mini cookies)
Eat right away or put in the fridge or freezer for quick snacks.
