Raw Energy Balls

Makes about 1 dozen balls

  • 1 cup raw almonds or walnuts
  • 1 cup medjool dates, pitted
  • ¼ cup raisins
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cardamom
  • ¼ cup raw almond butter

Shredded organic coconut

1. In a food processor fitted with the ‘s’ blade, grind the almonds until finely ground. Add the dates, raisins and spices. Grind to a fine meal.

2. Add the almond butter, process again until thoroughly mixed.

3. Form into balls and roll in shredded coconut.

4. Store in a sealed container on the counter for up to 3 days, or refrigerate for up to a week.

5. This recipe can be adapted numerous ways, I have replaced the raisins with dried blueberries or cherries, the almond butter with hazelnut or cashew butter, and added ground flax seeds, and organic chocolate chips/cocoa nibs. Experiment with whatever you like!
