Caramel Cinnamon Power Balls

IMG_0018

Happy Monday! I hope you’ve had a great weekend. Its been a rainy but enjoyable one here on the West Coast for me. I’ve got an easy new recipe to kick off the week. These balls make a great portable snack and are easily whipped together in a food processor. I call them “caramel” balls because the lucuma and dates give a sweet caramel taste.

Caramel Cinnamon Power Balls

Makes 7-8 balls

 

1/2 cup cashews

1/2 cup pecans

1/4 cup monukka raisins

1/4 cup lightly packed, pitted dates

3 tablespoons lucuma powder + 1 teaspoon for rolling

1 tablespoon chia seed

3/4 – 1 teaspoon cinnamon + 1 teaspoon for rolling

1/2 teaspoon vanilla bean powder

1 1/2 teaspoons water

Pinch of Himalayan salt

Process all ingredients except the water in a food processor until everything is broken down to crumbs. Add the water and process briefly to incorporate it. Roll into 7 or 8 balls. Combine the 1 teaspoon of cinnamon and 1 teaspoon of lucuma together in a small bowl. Roll each ball in the mixture.
