February 14th, 2014
Servings: 16 (2 balls per serving)
3 cups ground oat groats*
1 cup golden raisins
1 cup dried cranberries
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 tablespoon lucuma powder (optional)
1 cup raw cacao powder
Cinnamon, to taste
1 cup vanilla agave (or plain agave with 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract), or honey
5 tablespoons coconut oil, gently warmed to melt
1 cup almond butter
Place the ground oats, raisins, cranberries, sea salt, lucuma powder if using, cacao powder, and cinnamon in a blender and blend until combined. Pour the mixture into a large mixing bowl. Add the agave, coconut oil, and almond butter. Mix by hand until the mixture sticks together. Refrigerate for an hour, then remove from fridge and form into bite-size balls and place on a parchment-lined plate. Put the plate in the refrigerator until ready to consume. Or wrap individually and freeze- you can grab before you go!
*to grind, place the groats in a blender or food processor and pulse until coarse.
