Almond Power Balls

Standard

When it comes to living a Paleo Lifestyle, snacking is the thing that many people find most challenging. Vending machines are off-limits, standard granola bars and cookies are loaded with all those naughty ingredients we try to avoid, and often time isn’t on our side to whip up Paleo equivalents. That’s when quick and easy items, like Almond Power Bars can be a fabulous go-to (plus, they make a great dessert!)

Packed with nut and date power, these Balls are rich in fiber, healthy oils, potassium, magnesium and iron. Let’s get rollin’

INGREDIENTS

1 organic, free range egg
2 tablespoons grass-fed butter
1 tablespoon coconut palm sugar
1/2 cup dates, pitted and chopped
1 cup sliced almonds
1/4 cup coconut flakes
2 tablespoons almond butter

RECIPE

Makes 10 Almond Power Balls:

In a medium saucepan, melt the butter over low heat.
Add the egg and coconut palm sugar and stir quickly until thoroughly blended.
Toss the dates, almonds, coconut flakes and almond butter into a mixing bowl and pour in the heated egg and sugar mixture.
Stir until all the ingredients are well combined.
Using your hands, form the mixture into bite sized balls (if you find the mixture to be too moist, simply add a sprinkle of coconut flour or extra coconut flakes.)
Place in the refrigerator for about an hour to set and cool before serving.

Enjoy them one bite at a time as a healthy power snack on the go, a good-for-you dessert, or as a workout breakfast buddy. Drizzle them with more almond butter for an extra indulgent and protein-rich treat!
