PREP: 15min
YIELD: 9 servings

The Medjool dates in these Apple Cinnamon Energy Bites are a great energy boost for your day. Perfect for breakfast, or even as a Pre-workout snack!


  • 1 cup diced apple slices
  • ¾ cup Medjool date paste
  • 2 cups old-fashioned oats
  • ¼ cup hemp seed
  • ¾ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • pinch salt


  1. Begin by dicing the apple slices and spreading them out on a paper towel to remove as much excess moisture as possible.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients to a mixing bowl. Mix the ingredients together until well combined. Add the apples and stir to evenly distribute.
  3. Measure two tablespoons of the mixture for each ball. NOTE: A medium cookie scoop works well. Place the mixture in your hands and firmly squeeze it into a ball shape. Roll it between the palms of your hands to smooth it out and keep it round.
