My favorite healthy snacks are RAW BALLS! Raw balls are snacks that don’t need to be refrigerated because all of the ingredients are shelf stable. You can keep them cold if you want them to be a bit firmer, but they’re fine in a container on the counter too.
These are Cranberry Tart Raw Balls!
- 1.5 c gluten free oats
- 3/4 c organic dried cranberries
- 1/2 c almonds
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 4 large dried Turkish figs
Blend ingredients together in a food processor for a few minutes (I use the “Pulse” button on mine on and off for a bit) until it forms a sticky “dough” and roll into balls!
You can always adjust the amount of each ingredient when making raw balls to make them taste more of one ingredient than the other. The end goal is always the same – to have a sticky “dough” that you can roll into balls. So if you are short on oats, use less of the “sticky” ingredients like the dried fruit. If you put in too much of the dry ingredients (oats or almonds) then add a little more of the sticky ingredients (dried fruit).
So easy and a good snack to keep you energetic for those hikes, climbs and swims!
