Recently I ran my first marathon. When I was training I was always looking to make my own recovery food -- real food with simple ingredients. I came upon this recipe and couldn't be happier with the short, simple ingredients that go into this flavorful snack. Natural sugars and healthy fats make this great for the runner on-the-go.

Apricot Marathon Energy Bites


  • 1/2 cup dried apricots

  • 1 cup pitted dates

  • 1/2 cup cashews

  • 2 Tablespoons almond butter

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

    Combine all of the ingredients in a food processor.
    Blend until a paste begins to form. If your dried fruit was stale to begin with, you might have to add a few teaspoons of water to get it malleable.
    Press the dough into a square pan and cut into 10 equal portions.
