Cranberry Almond Energy Balls
Servings: 12 balls
- 1 cup chopped almonds, or other chopped nuts
- 1 cup unsweetened dried cranberries
- 1 cup almond flour
- ¾ cup natural almond butter, or nut or seed butter of your choice
- ¼ cup liquid Monk Frut, optional
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- pinch salt
In a medium bowl, mix all of the dry ingredients, except cranberries and stir well.
Add peanut butter and vanilla extract. Stir to combine.
Fold in cranberries and stir again.
Roll the mixture into 15 balls.
Store in airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week.
If you are having trouble rolling them into balls then I suggest refrigerating the "dough" for at least 30 minutes to allow it to come together. It's funny, it only happens some times for me but when it does, I simply place it back in the fridge.
This recipe makes between 10 and 12 balls, depending on the size.
