Healthy Apple Pie Energy Bites

If someone hand you a plate with delicious, fragrant, still warm apple pie (topped with ice cream), would you say NO?! Didn’t think so. I’m one of those people who drools over pastry shop window for pies and pushing to the front row when it comes to grabbing a slice. So I would probably be the loudest one, screaming GIMME!

I absolutely LOVE pies. And I make EXCELLENT pies (…just ask my hubby about my chocolate pie….) BUT, I’m totally lazy when it comes to making ones. YES, I’m the biggest slacker. Well, recently I found the way to satisfy my desire for apple pie with this easy to make, delicious, perfectly textured, sweet and aromatic energy bites.

These Apple Pie Energy Bites taste just like actual Apple Pie but it’s like raw and super easy healthy version. It only requires few simple ingredients, a food processor, and 10 minutes of your time. OMG so perfect!

For making these apple pie energy bites, I used ALL HEALTHY nutritious stuff – oats and almonds. Almonds are rich in healthy fats, antioxidants – vitamin E and vitamin B2, and minerals – manganese, magnesium, copper, phosphorus. Also, almonds are extremely important for our digestion system because they contain a lot of fibers, and serve as food for good bacteria – probiotics – in our gut.

To make energy bites, even more nutrients, I also added chia seeds that enriched the bites with more fibers and high-quality plant-based proteins.

To make my little apple pie bites sweet, I used natural sweetener – dried Medjool dates which I previously soaked in the warm water. Soaked dates gave the bites sweetness but also a beautiful soft texture and caramel flavor. I additionally flavored the mixture with warm autumn spices – cinnamon and allspice. Allspice nicely deepened the nutty flavor of almonds.

Of course, these apple pie energy bites are not called apple pie energy bites for no reason. There’s also apples in the mixture – dried ones aka.  apple chips. You can make apple chips yourself at home or purchase a bag in the store. I’m a total advocate of homemade stuff BUT given that in stores can be found a good quality apple chips, I used store-bought apple chips this time.
