Nut and Seed Snack Bites

The older I get the busier life becomes. And on top of that, I already am the type of person that will forget to eat when I am doing something I love.  Yikes!  So bring on the simple, healthy, grab and go, nutrition packed treats that keep me full, energized and in balance with my nutritional needs.

I am not really sure why, but I love getting all my ingredients together like this and then taking a moment or two to look at them before I make whatever it is I am making.

This isn’t just for the purpose of a picture…I actually do this picture or not. 🙂

I just like fully seeing everything that is going into what I am making and soon going into my tummy.

Dump everything into a big bowl and mix. Roll into whatever shape you like. Snack bites like this ↓ are fun or bars are nice too.  Adjust your sunflower butter and honey to get the right consistency for you and whatever shape you want to make.

Ingredients:

1 cup shredded coconut

1/2 cup chopped pecans

1/3 cup sesame seeds

1/4 cup pumpkin seeds

1/4 cup hemp seeds

1/4 cup flax meal

2 tsp cinnamon 

1/4 cup dried apricot

1/2 tsp salt

1/4-1/2 cup raw honey

1/4 – 1/2 cup sunflower seed butter 

 

Add all ingredient into a bowl and mix well. Adjust liquid ingredients ( sunflower butter and honey) until you reach a consistency you can manipulate into a bite size ball or bar.

Form into the shape you desire and snack away 🙂

These are very filling. One to two bites and I am usually satisfied.

Store in the fridge.

Enjoy!
