  • Combine toasted pecans and canola oil in a mini food processor and pulse until smooth (a little graininess is fine).

  • Whisk almond flour and cinnamon together in a small bowl.

  • Form pecan mixture into 1-inch balls and roll in the cinnamon mixture until coated. Freeze energy bites until firm, at least 1 hour.
