These little gems are super simple and sooo delicious. And the best part is that they are made up of easy to find, wholesome ingredients. You can modify the recipe easily too, for whatever you have on hand. I sometimes use walnuts instead of almonds. My husband is not a fan of peanut butter, so I leave that out when I make them for him. And sometimes, I add black beans to give some extra protein to the mix. They are ridiculously simple to make. Like, if you can push a button, you can make these. Because that’s really all it takes. Toss all of the ingredients into a food processor, hold the button until everything turns into one big blob. Then scoop out and roll the blob into bite-sized balls. I like eating them both chilled and at room temp. So whatever works best for you!
