½ cup raw cashews
½ cup raw almonds
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup chopped Medjool dates, about 6 dates
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Pinch of salt
In a high speed blender or food processor, add the cashews and almonds and pulse until they are finely ground, careful not to turn them into nut butter.
Add the remaining ingredients and pulse until everything is mixed. Scrape down the sides several times and add up to 2 tablespoons of water. You may need to remove the mixture and place it into a bowl and mash it together with your hands or a spatula. Form into approximately 20 balls about 2 teaspoons each.
Store the energy bites in an airtight container in the refrigerator or freezer.
