These little balls are packed full of healthy fat and protein. I started making them during my pregnancy and especially relied on them after the baby came... They make a great energy boost when you don't have time (or hands) to make food. Toddlers love them too. Mine calls them "cookie balls" and thinks they are dessert. Did I mention they are totally delicious?!
This is a double sized recipe because we go through them so quick I had to start making a double batch every time. Feel free to half it.
Combine first 5 ingredients in a big bowl.
Mix together wet ingredients.
Add wet mix to the nut mix and stir until well combined.
Roll into balls, then roll in chia seeds and place on a large plate. Refridgerate at least 1 hour, then you can put them into a container to store in the fridge.
You can play with the ingredients. Other seeds, nuts, dried fruit, liquid sweeteners can substitute. Also good with some cocao powder mixed into the almond butter if you want a more chocolatey taste.
