Cinnamon-Cherry Raw Beauty Bon Bons – YUM

Makes 2 dozen

Ingredients

  • ¾ cup almond butter
  • ½ cup dried cherries
  • ¼ cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1 cup gluten-free rolled oats
  • ½ cup organic finely shredded coconut
  • ½ cup hemp seeds
  • ¾ cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup raw honey
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

Preparation

1. Combine all the ingredients in a large mixing bowl and stir until everything is well incorporated and starting to stick together. Stick the bowl in the refrigerator for 10 minutes, or until the nut mixture has chilled and firmed up slightly.

2. With damp hands, form 1 tablespoon of dough into a ball, squeezing it until about 1-inch wide and very compact. (I found it helpful to have a bowl of water handy since the mixture can get sticky and it’s easier to have wet hands when handling). Continue with the remaining nut mixture, reserving the balls on a plate or parchment lined sheet pan. Chill the bon bon’s until ready to serve or store in an airtight container in the refrigerator to gift at your next holiday cookie exchange.

Note: These healthy dessert bites have lots of great ingredients for your skin! Replace the raw honey with maple syrup and they are vegan oatmeal cookies!
