Raw Oat & Nut Balls

21 Sep
My son said, “This is so good! I want more!”  Too bad my husband doesn’t like chocolate.  He keeps looking inside our sorry looking ‘snack’ cabinet.  It is almost empty and clearly without ready-to-eat snacks.  He peaks in the fridge next… no snacks in there too but for these yummy bites.  Yikes, I better make some snacks for him before he wastes away.
In the meantime, here’s this recipe.  Combine all ingredients and process in a food processor:
2 cups raw cold rolled oats (YES! There’s such a thing apparently!)
1/2 cup raw almond butter
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup nuts or seeds
1/2 cup raw cacao butter
1/3 cup cranberries
1 tbspn raw cacao powder
1 vanilla bean, scraped
1 tsp cinnamon
Roll into balls and drop in more raw cacao powder to cover the ball. Note – raw cacao powder is a little on the bitter side, so don’t overdo. Refrigerate.
