Apple Snack Bites

Hi guys! Forgive me for kind of being MIA this week. I’ve been trying to get over a bad stomach bug. Needles to say, food hasn’t been on my mind. And now I am in Seattle for a conference so I am happy to introduce a great guest blogger, Anne, from Teach. Eat. Love.!

I met Anne while we were both living the dorm life at FSU way back in the day (or at least it seems like it was way back in the day!). Anne is a new blogger and she is super talented! Anne’s blog is all about teaching kids how to eat healthy, natural, and wholesome foods. She creates delicious recipes that your whole family can enjoy eating so please stop by her blog sometime and tell her hello! I’ll leave it up to Anne from here to tell you about these tasty little apple snack bites she has made for us today!

Hi! I’m Anne. I love coming up with fun and healthy recipes to help my daughter become a better eater. Before my family started our journey to better eating, my daughter’s snacks used to consist of appalling amounts of cheddar bunnies. We still have bunnies every once in awhile for a special treat, but now I look for more nutrient-dense foods like these apple cinnamon snack bites. They’re kind of like a Larabar, but in a kid-sized portion.These snack bites have protein, good fats, fruit-derived sugars, and best of all, they’re delicious.

Apple Snack Bites

Apple Snack Bites


  • 1 packed c. Mejool dates (about 20)
  • 1/2 c. packed dried unsweetened apple rings (about 10)
  • 1 cup raw almonds
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 2 T. water
  • 1 tsp. sunflower oil

Optional coating:

  • 1/4 c. almond flour
  • dash of cinnamon


  1. In a food processor, puree the dates, apples, and almonds.
  2. Add the cinnamon and sunflower oil.
  3. Add enough water until the mixture barely clings together. I used 2 tablespoons, but depending on the moistness of the dates you use, you may need more or less.
  4. Pour the almond flour into a bowl along with the dash of cinnamon. If you don’t have almond flour, graham cracker crumbs would be a delicious substitute.
  5. Using a tablespoon, scoop out the date mixture and roll it into a ball. Repeat until all of the mixture is used.
  6. Roll each ball into the coating.
