Energy Bites

Perhaps "bite" isn't quite accurate, since each 1-1/2" morsel takes 3-4 bites... but "balls" isn't a very appetizing word.

The hardest part of making this delicious snack is deciding which fruit and nut combination to use (alright, the rolling segment is pretty messy, but that's half the fun)! 1-1/2c dried fruit and 1c nuts makes 32. We used figs, cranberries, and almonds roughly chopped in a food processor, hand-rolled, then coated Shake-n-Bake style in almond meal to minimize stickiness. So simple, and perfect for taking the edge off of afternoon munchies :)
