Cranberry Lemon Energy Bites

image

It always feel good when you are able to find a healthy snack that you actually enjoy.  These snacks are my new favorites. They are easy to make & are reminiscent of something that you could pick up at a health retreat or spa.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 tsp lemon essential extract or juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 cup old fashioned oats
  • ¼ cup almonds
  • ¼ cup flax or chia seeds
  • 3 tablespoons honey

Instructions

  • In a food processor or blender combine all of the ingredients and blend to create a paste.
  • If it is not forming a thick enough paste, add more honey. The mixture will be slightly crumbly but that is ok.
  • Form about 20 small balls & place them in the freezer for 15 minutes.
  • Don’t worry if they aren’t as pretty as you would like because once they have hardened in the freezer you can smooth them out.
  • Store in the refrigerator.
