Carob Nut Balls

by Claudia

They're not truffles but kinda, and they're not cookies but kinda. What they are is cute, healthy and delicious treats! You can see a photo on my food blog.

3/4 cup almond butter
1/2 cup carob powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/3 cup raw honey, brown rice syrup or agave nectar (up to 1/2 cup if you like them sweeter)
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup puffed or flake cereal
1/2 cup chopped nuts

unsweetened coconut
cocoa or carob powder combined with a dash of cinnamon
finely ground walnuts
graham cracker crumbs

First prepare the coating "station". Put the coating (coconut or whatever you choose) in a small bowl or ziplock bag. Have ready.

Thoroughly combine the almond butter, carob powder, cinnamon, honey and vanilla. The dough will be quite stiff. Knead in the nuts and cereal. With wet hands, form into walnut-sized balls. Make sure the surface is glisteningly damp. Plop the balls into the bowl or ziplock bag and shake or roll until the coating is all over the balls. Place onto a plate and repeat until all the dough is used up. That's all, no baking!

Refrigerate til firm, or freeze in an air-tight container to store for a week or more.
