Lisa's Raw Balls (Vegan)

From the book - Kind Diet by Alicia Silverstone.

Makes 10 - 12 Balls
• 1/2 cup walnuts

• 1/2 cup pitted dates

• Scant 1/2 cup raw carob powder

• Scant 1/2 cup maple syrup

• 1/2 cup almond butter

• 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract

• 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt

• 1/2 cup whole almonds

• 2 cups shredded coconut (sweetener or unsweetened)

1. Place the walnuts in a food processor & process until coarsely ground. Add the dates & pulse until well combined with the nuts.

2. Add the carob powder, syrup, almond butter, vanilla extract & salt. Process until mixture is thick & smooth.

3. Add the almonds, pulse a few times until combined, but you want them to remain in crunchy chunks so do not over process.

4. Form into golf-size balls with your hands. Roll the balls in coconut, icing sugar or whatever you desire.

Place in a sealed container in the freezer until hardened.
