This is a great snack/treat - not low in fat, but the fat it does have is good fat. My kids LOVE these. This is the first recipe we tried - but there are many variations that are excellent too.

1 c. raw almonds
1 c. walnuts
1/2 c. raw shelled sunflower seeds

• Mix in food processor for 60 seconds, then add:

13-15 dates, pitted
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
1-2 T. unsweetened cocoa powder

• Mix for another 60 seconds, then roll into 1 inch balls. Store in a tupperware in the fridge.

*Today when I made them I didn't have walnuts, so I used 1/2 c. oats instead. I also added 2 T. of healthy peanut butter. Delicious!

We always have some variation of these in the fridge. They are the best snack ever for the kids. At first Noah and Travis were not fans, but now they both love them, too...i have been forgetting the cinnamon, though! ooops.
