Raw Vegan Chocolate Fruit Balls

My mom and I make these raw fruit balls all the time and they are absolutely delicious. We use raw almonds, cashews and macadamias as our nutty blend. But you could use any nuts that tickle your festive fancy. Just know that each nut mix will yield a treat of a different personality. Roll out these vegan treats. They make great snacks in school or work lunch boxes; great power snacks for a long work out; or a great little bite to put beside a cup of herbal tea. These will last in a sealed glass container in the fridge for weeks. But they never do!

Instructions

  1. 1Mix the coconut and cinnamon in a small bowl and set aside for rolling.
  2. 2Put all other ingredients in a food processor, and slowly add in the orange juice if it doesn’t bind together completely.
  3. 3Roll into small balls and coat with the coconut mixture.
  4. 4Store in a sealed glass container in the fridge.
