  • 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.
Easy peasy.
This recipe makes between 10 and 12 balls, depending on the size.
