These Nut Free Cranberry Pumpkin Seed Energy Balls are dairy, gluten and refined sugar free. The perfect no-bake snack for people with food sensitivities.
Ingredients
  • 1 cup roasted pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
  • 1 cup pitted dates, soaked in warm water for about 10 minutes then drained
  • ¼-1/3 cup dried cranberries
  • Optional: ½ tsp ground ginger for a little kick
Instructions
  1. Pulse pumpkin seeds in food processor until broken down
  2. Add softened dates, dried cranberries and ginger (if using) to food processor and process until everything comes together
  3. Break off pieces of the 'dough' and roll into balls
  4. I made mine small enough to form 10 balls but any size is fine
  5. You can eat them right away, but they will be soft. If you prefer them a little firmer, refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or overnight
  6. Store in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer for up to 2 weeks
