INGREDIENTS:

 

TOPPINGS: Ground pistachios and lavender buds.

 

DIRECTION: 

Place the the almonds, pecans, cinnamon, cardamom and sea salt into a food processor and pulse until fully crushed before forming into a butter texture. Add the dates, apricots, coconut oil, almond butter, vanilla extract and pulse until you get a sticky mixture. Take a tablespoon of the mixture, roll into small balls and cover with your favorite topping. Place the ready balls into the freezer for about 30 minutes for a firm texture. Remove and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
