Something sweet and filled with the good stuff. A snack that will satisfy your hungry teenager and the rest of your family. Whole food energy in every bite!


1 cup raw almonds or cashews
1/4 cup pistachios
1 cup organic dates, Trader Joes
1/4 cup raw almond or cashew butter
3 tablespoons flax meal
3 tablespoons cacao powder
1 tablespoon coconut
1 tablespoon Virgin Raw Bee Honey
1 teaspoon alcohol free vanilla extract
dash of Himalayan salt


1. Combine all the nuts and seeds in a food processor and pulse until broken down. I sometimes will blend it less resulting in bigger chunks.

2. Transfer the processed nuts to a mixing bowl.

3. In the food processor, combine dates until smooth.

4. Add the nut and seed mixture back into the food processor and blend.

5. Add  the rest of the ingredients. You may need to transfer the “batter” to a bowl to mix further.

6. Using a tablespoon or ice cream scoop measure the batter and roll into balls.

7. Enjoy!
