Ingredients
    2 cups puffed rice
  • 2 tbs. chia seeds
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. ground flax (optional)
  • 3/4 cup organic almond butter
  • 3/4 cup raw organic honey
Directions

Combine the almond butter and honey in a small bowl and heat in the microwave for 40-45 seconds or until melted and smooth. Add the puffed rice, chia seeds, cinnamon and flax to a food processor and pulse for 5-10 seconds until combined. Be sure not to blend for too long, otherwise the puffed rice will loose its crunchy texture. Add the honey and almond butter mixture then pulse again for a few seconds until fully combined.

Scoop about 1 heaping tablespoon of the mixture and roll into a ball. Set aside in the fridge for about 30 minutes to firm up, if desired. *If the mixture becomes too sticky set in the fridge for about an hour to firm up before rolling into balls. Store in the fridge in an airtight container for up to one week or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
