Almond Butter Balls
- Ingredients1 cup smooth, organic almond or peanut butter
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1 tablespoon raw cacao powder
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3 tablespoons raw honey (or maple syrup)
1 3/4 cups puffed millet (or puffed brown rice cereal)
2 tbsp honey - heated until liquid form
1/4 cup almond meal
1 tablespoon macha powder
1/4 cup coconut flakes
- Methods / StepsCombine coconut oil, honey and almond/peanut butter, cacao powder and cinnamon in a small pot.
On medium heat, melt ingredients together. Remove from heat as soon as the mixture has melted together. Do not overheat or these will not work. Add millet to the mixture and stir to combine.
Let the mixture cool on the counter for 15 minutes before rolling into golf-sized balls. Roll balls in honey and coat balls with a mixture of coconut flakes and macha powder or almond meal (optional).
Store them in the refrigerator.
- Additional TipsThese Almond Butter Balls are a great snack before the gym, for a breakfast on the run or as a delicious dessert. They are not overly sweet, but they are pretty dense, so you don’t need too many before you fill up. Perfect alongside a glass of almond or coconut milk.
