Organic Almond Butter Bites

Organic Almond Butter Nut Balls

These are so easy to make and they make a great treat for later in the day. I keep them in a sealed tight container in the fridge and they can last for weeks, but they’ll be gone in a few days. Mark my words!! The whole family will get their hands on them and eat them up.

Ingredients:

  • 2/3 of organic almonds
  • 2/3 of organic cashews
  • 2/3 of organic sunflower Seeds
  • 2/3 cup of organic almond butter (smooth)
  • 1/2 cup organic honey
  • 2/3 cup of organic dark chocolate chips. (I love Camino, Pascha or Hu Kitchen)
  • 1/4 tsp Himalayan sea salt

Directions:

  1. Put the nuts on a baking sheet.
  2. Brush lightly with olive oil
  3. Roast the nuts on 350 for 12 minutes
  4. Take the nuts out of the oven. Let them cool completely
  5. Throw the almond into the cuisinart and pulse to chop - about five times. Remove and place in bowl
  6. Throw the cashews in the cuisinart and pulse to chop - about five times. They will chop faster then almonds as they are a softer nut. Remove and place in bowl
  7. Add sunflower seeds
  8. Add the sea salt
  9. In a saucepan, add the almond butter and honey and and mix until smooth.
  10.  Add the wet mixture to the nuts and seeds and mix well with a spoon or   spatula.
  11. Mix well until it forms a ball
  12. Form smaller balls and place them on parchment paper on a tray
  13. Melt the chocolate on the stove. I like to fill a saucepan or a pot with a little water. Then place a glass bowl resting on top with the chocolate chips to melt. Stir until melted and smooth. You can use a double boiler as well.
  14. Remove the and dip the balls into the chocolate with a spoon. Toss them around to coat evenly.
  15.  Let them chill in the fridge until they Harden. A couple of hours and then store in a container.
