Holiday Almond Butter Balls & Cranberry Apple Cocktail

YUMMY! Holiday Almond Butter Balls & Cranberry Apple Cocktail

Tis’ the season for treats. Rather than gooey sweets made with sugar, make something you can enjoy that won’t depress your immune system or send your blood sugar soaring. I made these Almond Butter Balls for gifts for my neighbor and a friend. You can package them in a Christmas tin or a decorative Christmas box. If you have a special event to attend, take a healthy treat. At least you’ll know you have something there you can eat. I love to make these with Sweet Leaf Vanilla Creme or Sweet Leaf English Toffee stevia. Serve them with a delicious cranberry apple juice cocktail.

Almond Butter Balls

I like crunchy almond butter best in this recipe.

  • 16 oz. almond butter (crunchy or creamy)
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. stevia and 1/4 cup coconut nectar or syrup or to taste
  • 2 cups rolled oats or oat flour
  • 1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut flakes or finely chopped nuts, or both

Sugar-KnockoutMix almond butter, cinnamon, and sweetener together in a bowl. Use oats as they are, or blend them until they assume a powder-like texture or use oat flour. Add oats to the nut butter/sweetener mixture and mix until combined, working with hands. Adjust consistency if necessary. Roll batter into small balls.

Wet hands often to prevent mixture from sticking to hands. Roll balls in coconut flakes or chopped nuts. Chill and eat! Makes 40 balls.

Notes: This recipe yields a lot, so you can freeze the balls and grab a few when you need a snack or are craving something sweet. It’s worthwhile to make them all at once and freeze them or keep them in the fridge for up to ten days.
