After my granola energy bites and my banana bread energy bites, it’s time for another healthy snack attack but this time, a fall and winter edition with pistachio and cranberries snack bites! To me cranberries just scream holidays, and pistachios just go so well with them! (Ever tried my cranberry and pistachio rice? A side dish must for the holidays!)

These energy balls are made with only three ingredients: 1/Medjool dates as a base 2/pistachios 3/cranberries. And that is IT! I love me some super easy snack recipes! You practically dump everything in the food processor, roll them into balls, chill them in the fridge and BAM you’re done.

Enjoy! 🙂
