  • Yield: 14 1x


A satisfying snack or desert that is full of protein, nuts, dried fruit and covered in Quaker® Simply Granola.


  • 1 cup whole dates
  • 2 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 cup sliced (or whole) almonds
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 2/3 cup dried apples
  • 2 scoops vanilla protein powder
  • 1 Tbsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 cups Quaker® Simply Granola Oats, Apples, Cranberries & Almonds


  1. Soften the dates for a few minutes in some warm water. Slice them open and remove the seed from each date. Roughly chop the dates and place in a food processor.
  2. Add the maple syrup and pulse until smooth and creamy. You may have to scrape down the sides a few times to make sure everything has been processed.
  3. Add the almonds, cranberries, apples, protein powder and pumpkin pie spice and pulse until everything is incorporated. You should be left with a sticky “dough”.
  4. Grab about 2 Tbsp of the mixture and roll into a 1 inch ball.
  5. Gently press the granola around the protein ball and shape back into a ball.
  6. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to two weeks!
