These sweet raw Apple Walnut Balls are a healthy snack. They are great to take on hikes or traveling.
I won multiple packages of dates recently, which inspired me to make different types of raw fruit bars. In addition to these Apple Walnut Balls, I also made Cashew Cranberry Bars and Banana Pecan Balls.
The Cashew Cranberry is the sweetest of all of them, so I included them in my dessert section. The Apple Walnut Balls and the Banana Pecan balls are more like protein bars in my opinion.
You could make these into bars, but I found it easier to form balls. They could also be used as a crumble and added to granola or coconut yogurt. They are perfect to pack for lunch, on a hike, or just stashed in your car or purse for a quick snack.
I dehydrated the apples, but if you don’t have a dehydrator, you can buy them already dehydrated. I have gone through phases of eating a raw vegan diet throughout the 18 years that I have been a vegan. A dehydrator is one of the must-have appliances for a raw vegan diet.These sweet raw Apple Walnut Balls are a healthy snack! Click To Tweet

This is the dehydrator that I own. I’ve used it to make crackers, fruit roll-ups, and more. It’s similar to a slow cooker in that it’s set it and forget it.
Apple Walnut Balls
- Cut apples into large chunks and dehydrate at 110° for 24-36 hours, depending upon the size of the chunks. If you do not have a dehydrator, you can purchase dehydrated apples with no preservatives at most natural food stores.
- Pit dates and mix all ingredients in a food processor until ground.
- Form into balls or bars. It may take a bit of working the mixture for awhile, but they will turn into balls. To make handling the mixture easier, you may want to refrigerate it first. You could add more dates, if needed.
