It's Basement Update Day!
Last week we watched as some of the basement walls came down. It was super exciting to see the space open up but, scary at the same time.
In the span of just a few days, we went from one wall to three walls to no wall! Things certainly appeared (to me) to get worse before they got better.😅 I feel like the same principle applies to baking. I make a giant mess during the process but I end up with something even better than the ingredients that I start with.
If you like to get in and get your hands dirty while you cook - this recipe is right up your alley. If you don't - I recommend that you enlist the help of your children, spouse or any other willing participant who can assist you with the messy parts of this recipe.
Making Cinnamon Bun Energy Bites can be a messy process but they aren't hard to make. There are just 2 simple instructions.
1. Put the ingredients in a food process (or blender) and process until smooth.
2. Roll the mixture into balls with your hands and then in the chopped nuts.
Sounds simple enough, right? The challenge for me is to not get Cinnamon Bun Energy Bites mixture on my cabinet drawers, my counter, the floor, all over the kitchen sink handle AND myself while I'm rolling. 🤦🏻♀️
Cinnamon Bun Energy Bites
½ cup walnuts
5 Medjool dates, pitted
3 tablespoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground cardamom
1 tablespoon finely chopped walnuts
Combine 1/2 cup walnuts, dates, cinnamon, and cardamom together in a food processor.
Blend until smooth.
Roll mixture into balls.
Place finely chopped walnuts in a shallow bowl and roll balls in walnuts to coat.
A sweet snack with 5 ingredients and 2 steps - that's my kind of snack. I store these date balls in my refrigerator so I can grab one when my sweet tooth screams for a treat. 🤣
