I have another fantastic energy food to share with you today, Pineapple Energy Balls. They are slightly sweeter than my other energy bar recipes. However, there's no added sugar because the dried pineapple itself had been sweetened with organic cane sugar. Tastes so good and my kids just love them, even took some to school to share with their friends!
Pineapple Energy Balls
6 Large (110 g) Medjool Dates, pitted and chopped
1 ½ Cups (240 g) Dried Pineapples, chopped
1 Cup (80 g) Unsweetened Shredded Coconuts
1 Cup (120 g) Raw Almonds (without skin)
1-Cup (140 g) Raw Cashew Nuts
A Pinch of Sea Salt
2 Tbsp Orange Juice
Combine chopped dates, pineapples, coconuts, cashews, almonds, and sea salt in a food processor. Pulse and process all the ingredients together until the texture is coarse. Then add the orange juice, a quick pulse, or until it reaches a dry but moist dough consistency. Scrape the dough mixture into a clean bowl, roll slightly heaped teaspoonfuls of mixture between your palms into compact little balls. Put them on the tray and into the fridge for an hour or so to firm up. Serve chilled or at room temperature.
