  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
  2. Roast the rolled oats and whole nuts (if not pre-roasted) on the middle rack of the oven for 8 - 10 minutes, or until lightly golden, stirring once halfway. This is optional and can be skipped if you’d prefer to speed it up.
  3. In a large bowl, add the ground flaxseeds and water. Let sit to gel.
  4. On a plate, mash the dates with a fork until smooth. Alternatively, you could use a food processor.
  5. Add the mashed dates, maple syrup, and vanilla to the bowl with the flaxseed. Mix to combine.
  6. Then add the remaining ingredients and gently toss until evenly coated. Roll into bite-sized balls. Best if let to refrigerate for 30 minutes. Enjoy!

I absolutely love this snack, and it was easy to make. The extra time in the oven was worth it, as the oats also got a nice crunch! I like the idea to add oats in energy balls to gain additional fibres during the day. I used raisins instead of cranberries, which became a perfect combo with the chocolate and distinct pistachio flavour. I’m so happy to have your collection of snacks for variation between fresh fruits and vegetables 🤩
