Almond Butter and Cherry Bites
My mom used to make ‘peanut butter balls’ for us growing up. This genius invention of hers required 2 ingredients (crunchy peanut butter and confectioners sugar) and about 1 minute of her time while leaving her four kids happy, satisfied and wanting more!
Now I’ve come up with a modern twist on this childhood favorite by using two power house foods, almond butter and coco powder, while adding friendly sweeteners like agave nectar and dried fruit. This snack is high in protein and healthy fat and is SIMPLE too. So use these delicious Almond Balls to keep you satisfied and on track with your fitness goals.
This is a great snack for kids too! Even my 1yr old son snacks on these.
1/2 cup Almond Butter
2 Tbsp cup Coco Powder
1 Tbsp agave nectar (or honey) *add a bit more if it needs to be sweeter
1/4 cup dried fruit (or chocolate chips if you’re feeling indulgent)
Mix all ingredients together. Now form 1″ balls with the mixture. Store almond balls in the refrigerator so that they’ll keep their shape.
