If you are feeling like me, this week is all about eating light healthy meals to get back on the health kick wagon. Besides, there are plenty of holiday parties coming up and I want to feel good about indulging. Thank god for almond amazeballs!
These guys taste like cookie dough. But the truth is they are totally healthy and jam-packed with vital nutrients to keep you going from one holiday party to the next. I am already anticipating how handy these will be come farm season. I love quick, easy, healthy snacks and these fit the bill.
I think these puppies taste best with a cup of black coffee. And hey, if you are feeling ambitious like me put your elastic waistband pants to good use. I’m hitting up a yoga class this afternoon. I think these guys will taste extra good after an hour of downward dog.
Almond amazeballs: The measurements are an approximation. Taste test as you go and feel free to swap out ingredients. It’s just a method so go wild. I just added a tbs of coconut oil to the recipe (which I did not need) but if the mixture is too dry this should help! Enjoy. We love these!
1 cup raw almonds
1 cup dates, pitted
1/4 cup ground flax
1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1/4 cup mixed seeds (sunflower, pumpkin ect.)
1/4 cup almond butter
1/2 cup oats (you may need a bit more, just add if you need to)
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tbs coconut oil
pinch of sea salt
In a bowl combine the seeds and oats. Set aside.
Place the almonds in a food processor. Process until finely chopped. Add dates, shredded coconut, almond butter, coconut oil, flax, salt, and cinnamon. Process until slightly smooth but still a little chunky.
Add mixture to bowl of oats and seeds. Mix well. Form into balls and refrigerate for at least 45 minutes before enjoying. They will keep in the fridge for a week or so.
