Apple Pie Oatmeal Power Balls


  • Author: Jasmine Briones / Sweet Simple Vegan
  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: 10-12 power balss

Ingredients

Dry Ingredients:

  • 4 dried calimyrna figs, destemmed and chopped
  • 1/4 cup almonds
  • 1/4 cup cashews
  • 1 cups gluten-free rolled oats*
  • 2 tbsp goji berries
  • 1.5 tbsp mulberries
  • ⅛ tsp cinnamon
  • Pinches of ginger, cloves and nutmeg

Caramel:

  • 10 medjool dates, pitted and chopped
  • 1 apple of choice, decored and chopped (I used Fuji), divided
  • ⅛ tsp vanilla powder or extract (optional)
  • ⅛ tsp cinnamon
  • Pinches of ginger, cloves and nutmeg

Instructions

Dry Ingredients

  1. Place all of the dry ingredients, except for the oats, into a food processor and run until roughly chopped. Add in the oats and pulse to combine.
  2. Pour into a bowl and set aside.

Caramel

  1. Create your caramel by placing the caramel ingredients and only 3/4 of the apple into a food processor and process until smooth.
  2. Add in the remaining 1/4 of the apple and pulse until combined and chunky.

Assembly

  1. Pour all of the dry ingredients into the wet in the food processor and either mix or pulse until combined.
  2. If it is too sticky, pulse in or mix in more oats until it is sturdy, at a crust like consistency. If it is too crumbly, add more dates.
  3. Take about 1 1/2 tablespoon sized pieces and roll into balls.
  4. Will keep in the fridge for about a week, and may even be frozen for longer.

Notes

I ended up having to add in a few tablespoons more of oats as mine was a bit too sticky.
To make these raw, use raw oats or sub in a dry ingredient, like more nuts, sunflower seeds, or sprouted buckwheat groats.
