15 Balls
Ingredients: 
  • ½ cup almonds + 15 almonds reserved
  • ½ cup walnuts
  • Pinch salt
  • 3 Tablespoons maca powder
  • 2 Tablespoons raw cacao powder
  • ¼ cup shredded coconut

  • ¾ cup Medjool dates, pitted
  • 1 Tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 Tablespoon water + more if necessary
Instructions: 
  1. Add ½ cup almonds, walnuts and salt into food processor. Blend until very fine, like the texture of sand.
  2. Add in remaining ingredients. Blend again, until mixture begins to thicken and stick together.
  3. Check texture by pinching a bit between your fingers. It should be sticky and able to keep its shape. If mixture is too dry, add 1 Tablespoon more water.
