Another super-easy, kid-friendly and healthy snack. All these little granola balls seem similar, but there are variations in each recipe. As you get more comfortable making raw snacks and supplying your kitchen with healthy ingredients, you can easily whip up your own. I always like to add coconut oil or almond butter as your "glue" to hold everything together when you refrigerate it.
Chocolate Almond Balls: (raw, vegetarian, gluten-free)
1 cup Almonds
1 cups Pecans
2 Tbs Raw Cacao Powder
2 Tbs Raw Honey (substitute agave or coconut nectar to make it vegan)
Pinch of Sea Salt
Pinch of Cinnamon
Large spoonful of Almond Butter
Place almonds and pecans (you can use any nuts you like) in food processor or blender and pulse until medium coarse. Add in Cacao Powder, Sea Salt and Cinnamon and pulse. Add in Honey and pulse. Add in Almond Butter and pulse. As it gets thicker you make have to remove and hand mix. Roll into little balls and place on parchment paper. Refrigerate atleast 1 hour before serving.
