Recipe: Vanilla Cranberry Energy Bites

When you have plans to spend almost 40 nights outside over the camping season, it makes sense to have some variety when it comes to snacks and meals.

I made up these Vanilla Cranberry Energy Bites the same day that I cracked a cerveza and made Coconut, Lime and Macadamia nut energy bites.

I love dried cranberries! I put them in my oatmeal, salads, for snacking and in energy bites. These bites are delicious and super easy to make if you have a food processor.



  • 1/2 cup cashews (I use roasted, unsalted for added flavour)
  • 1/2 almonds (roasted, unsalted)
  • 1/2 organic dried cranberries, chopped
  • 7 medjool dates
  • 1/2 teaspoon high quality vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tablespoon water
Blend almonds and cashews until you get a fine mixture.


  1. Add cashews and almonds to a food processor and blend until you have a fine ground mixture.
  2. Add cranberries, dates, vanilla, salt and water. Pulse until all combined.
  3. Start forming mixture into bite-sized balls. 1-2 teaspoons. This recipe made about 12 bites.
  4. Refrigerate until ready to eat, or put them in the freezer for a later date.
