PSST – I’ve got some exciting news! I’m going to the Sundance Film Festival this weekend! πŸ™‚

I am so excited — it’s in Park City, Utah! And every year, my family goes, and we ski, catch some films, do some incredibly delicious eating, and just have a grand old time!

And let me tell you — I ski hard. I’ve been skiing (and keeping up with my brothers) since I was five years old, so suffice it to say that I like to tear up the slopes.

But all that time shredding the gnar leaves me quite hungry, so one of the first things I do when I get to our condo in Park City is make a batch of my Apple Pie Energy Bites!

Let’s be honest — they’re really cookies, but they’re healthy enough that I can eat a handful, or stuff some in my pocket without feeling guilty!

They’re packed with protein, and fiber and healthy fats. They’re satisfying and really hit that sweet spot too!

In fact, I like to make them when I have dinner guests as dessert — because let me tell ya, they’re a crowd pleaser!


I originally made these bad boys for my sister-in-law’s baby shower.

And well…that baby is now a darling 6 year old. But these cookies have stood the test of time. They were the hit of the partyΒ then, and they’re still a party stand-byΒ now.

These crunchy little bites were sweet and spicy and utterly delightful!

Apple Pie Cookies by BeautyBeyondBones #healthy #glutenfree #vegan #paleo #raw #dessert #vegetarian #edrecovery #energybites #food

Here’s what you need: (Makes 35 bites)

12 dates
1/4 cup Almond Butter
1/2 cup almonds
1/2 cup cashews
2 pinches of salt
1 cup of Baked Apple Chips
2 tsp ground cinnamon

30 almonds, whole
30 almonds, halved
3/4 cup baked apple chips

Food Processor (This is the one I use and LOVE)

Put everything (minus the additional ingredients) into the food processor and process until it becomes like coarse sand.

Then, add in your additional 30 whole almonds and additional 3/4 cup apple chips. Pulse several times. (You want them to remain somewhat chunky for texture.)

Finally, stir in your additional 30 halved almonds.

Form balls out of 1 rounded tsp.

Chill for 30 minutes. Makes 35 bites.

Holy cow! What a delicious little cookie! Not only are they cute, but they are SO tasty! They taste just like apple pie! They’re spicy from the cinnamon, and have a fresh, sweet flavor from the apples!

And they’re crunchy and chewy, and IΒ loveΒ them chilled! Simply incredible.

Plus — they’re great to snack on on the chairlift — portable energy is what I like to call them!

But be sure to bring extra for your chairlift-mates, because they for sure will want some! hahah

    • Thanks Ted — you really are right about that – i’m the only one left in my family without one. i really should. hugs x

      • Like everything else you do, Caralyn, don’t talk about it; do it! Sorry for the lecture but there is no reason not to wear a helmet. Bad things happen skiing. And I’ve said the same to my daughter (your age), who wears a helmet. Ted

  1. those apple pie bites look so good – thanks for the recipe. And enjoy your trip to the Sundance Film Festival – that’s on my bucket list (minus the skiing!)

    • Thank you so much Jim! You’re so right! oh yes definitely try to get here! it is such a fun experience! hugs xox

    • Thank you!! oh they are absolutely one of my favorites! definitely worth taking the time to make them! thanks for stopping by! hugs xo

  2. We went to Park City last July and it was awesome! We aren’t skiers but we really want to try. Park City was so nice I can’t wait to go back. We might consider moving there someday. Do you love it?

    • Isn’t Park City so picturesque!? There’s so much life on Main Street – I love it so much!! Thanks for stopping by! Hugs and love xox

      • Main Street is amazing. We went to this awesome restaurant called Butcher’s Chop House, if I remember correctly. It’s a steakhouse. It was fantastic. Check it out next visit!

      • I love it!! Oooh I’ll have to try out that restaurant! Thanks for the recco! Hugs and love xox

  3. Yummy, I’d like some of those atop a mountain of vanilla ice-cream while sitting by the fireplace looking out at the snowy mountains listening to some soft classical music!
    You take care now ya hear!!! Lawrence

      • Hi Caralyn, and I must agree with you wholeheartedly especially in light of the fact that I sure need that kind of tranquil idyllic place to Park my heart and soul for such a temporary reprieve; and I have faith its coming being long overdue! Climbing the highest mountains even if not actual physical mountains but only metaphoric ones can be very fatiguing to say the least! In some instances I would prefer the actual mountain to climb, LOL! Thank you for the warm and thoughtful response and I hope everything is AOK and steady as she goes in your lane of travel; now and on through your return to NYC from your trip! ENJOY! God Bless.
        I know you understand β€˜from whence I speak’…..

    • Oh my gosh I’m so glad you enjoyed them!! Hahaha awesome! Did you refrigerate them before hand? They are *excellent* chilled! πŸ₯°πŸ₯°πŸ₯°πŸ₯° thanks for sharing your success!!

  5. I made these tasty little morsels last week and wow! Even my picky kid liked them, and that’s a high compliment. I kept them in the fridge because if they stayed on the counter they would have been gone in a hot minute. Trying to make them last is a challenge. Thanks for sharing this recipe, this is definitely going to be a habit in my house!

    • Oh that’s so awesome!!! I’m so glad you enjoyed them, Gretchen! Haha good call with the fridge πŸ™‚ have a great day! Hugs and love xox
