Updated January 24, 2020

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Cascadian Farm™ organic oats & honey granola (from 16-oz box)
  • 1/2 cup chopped dried apples
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed pitted Medjool dates
  • 1/2 cup salted roasted whole almonds
  • 1/4 cup Justin's™ Classic almond butter (from 16-oz jar)
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon fine sea salt

Steps

  • 1
    Line tray with cooking parchment paper. In large bowl, mix granola and apples; set aside.
  • 2
    In food processor, place dates, almonds, almond butter, honey, vanilla, cinnamon, ginger and salt. Cover and process in 1-second bursts until finely chopped, about 10 to 15 bursts; process until well blended and mixture comes together into a ball.
  • 3
    Transfer date mixture to bowl with granola mixture. Coat hands lightly with water; use hands to blend mixture completely. Scoop out by measuring tablespoonfuls, and shape each portion into a ball; place on tray.
  • 4
    Refrigerate about 1 hour or until firm. Store in tightly covered container in refrigerator up to 3 days.

Expert Tips

  • Medjool dates are plump, large dates with a sweet flavor that works well in sweet and savory recipes. They’re often found in the produce section at your local grocery store.
  • These no-bake granola bites can be frozen in a single layer in a freezer-safe container up to one month. Keeping them covered, thaw them overnight in refrigerator before enjoying.
  • Don’t skip roasting the almonds! Roasting nuts gives them a deeper, more complex flavor that you just can’t get from raw nuts.
