Applesauce Tahini Oatmeal Bites

Energy bites are a staple in my kitchen, and are pretty much made on a weekly basis. Other than being a healthy, filling, grab-and-go snack, I love how quick they are to prepare and ready to eat in minutes!


I typically make them with peanut butter or almond butter, but switched it up this time and used tahini instead. I love using tahini in the kitchen - in dressings, sauces, and cookies, so why not in energy bites too? The combination of applesauce and tahini is so flavourful, and by using tahini, you're also getting a little extra calcium than you would with other nut butters. Tahini is also a good source of copper, selenium, phosphorous, iron and zinc.



Ingredients


1 cup oats

1/4 cup almond flour

2 tbsp flax meal

2 tbsp tahini

2 tbsp unsweetened applesauce

1.5 tbsp real maple syrup

1/4 cup shredded coconut

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/4 cup dried cranberries


Directions


Mix everything together in a large bowl. Roll into balls (makes about 10), store in the fridge and enjoy!
