Apple Pie Bites

These babies are a great source of iron, fibre and essential fatty acids - ideal for healthy brain function and focus. Packed with energy, the oats help to balance out the natural sweetness of the dried fruit, and stabilise the blood sugar.

 

Ingredients

80g dried apple

80g pitted dried dates

50g rolled oats

30g sunflower seeds

30g raisins or sultanas

30g chia seeds

1 tbsp vanilla protein powder or 1 tsp of vanilla extract/paste/powder

1 tsp ground cinnamon

 

Here’s what you do…

Blitz all ingredients together in your food processor, high speed blender or Thermomix. It takes 90 seconds in my blender for the ingredients to come together, so depending on the power of your blender you may need to be patient.

Roll mixture into balls and store in the fridge.

 

NOTE

I use plant-based protein powders as I can’t tolerate whey. Whichever type you choose, be sure it’s one made with real ingredients and no synthetics (unlike the ones generally sold for body building and found in sports nutrition/supplement type stores). I personally have used and like the ones by Prana On, Amazonia Raw and Nutra Organics, but there are plenty of great wholefood options out there.
