It must be September. It seems like overnight the pumpkin and pumpkin spice stuff has overtaken the shelves. Seriously, the whole pumpkin spice thing is getting out of hand. Last year I saw pumpkin spice flavored dental floss. Whats next pumpkin spice flavored tooth paste?
I am going to do my best to combat the pumpkin spice craziness by posting as many cranberry recipes as possible between now and Thanksgiving.
I am going to start the cranberry recipes with a simple recipe for energy balls. I made this recipe because I wanted something snacky but didn’t want to make too effort to get it. I wasn’t expecting much from them but they were surprisingly satisfying.
Cranberry Almond Energy Balls
From Cupcakes and Kale Chips
1/2 cup pitted dates
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup oats
1/2 cup almonds
Combine all the ingredients in a food processor and process until a thick paste forms. Use 1 teaspoon of the mixture form into balls. Store in an airtight container.
