Ingredients
  1. ALMOND BALLS
  2. 2 cups almond meal
  3. 2 tablespoons cinnamon
  4. 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  5. 1 cup raisins, soaked in warm water for a few minutes
  6. 1/4 cup orange juice
  7. 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  8. VANILLA CREAM SAUCE
  9. 1 cup raw cashews, best if soaked 1 hour or more
  10. 1 cup coconut meat
  11. 1/2 cup water
  12. 1/2 cup agave
  13. 2 tablespoons vanilla extract
  14. 1/4 teaspoons Celtic sea salt
  15. 1/2 cup coconut butter/oil, warmed to liquefy
Instructions
  1. ALMOND BALLS
  2. Combine almond meal, cinnamon and nutmeg in a bowl and mix well.
  3. Add orange juice, raisins and vanilla to blender and blend enough to break the raisins apart, but not pulverize them completely.
  4. Add liquid mixture to dry ingredients and mix together with a spatula until the mixture begins to form into a ball.
  5. Using a teaspoon or very small ice cream scoop, take small amounts of dough and roll in your hands to make little balls. Set on plate.
  6. These can be served at room temperature or chilled to make firmer.
  7. For an added treat, you can make this Vanilla Cream Sauce to serve with them. With this sauce, they truly rival Cinnabun :)
  8. VANILLA CREAM SAUCE
  9. In a high-speed blender, blend all ingredients except the coconut oil, until completely smooth.
  10. With the blender on low, gradually add the coconut oil and continue to blend until completely incorporated and smooth.
  11. This can be served at room temperature and drizzled over the balls, or chilled and used more like a frosting. So Good!
Notes
  1. Lower Glycemic Option
  2. Replace the Agave in the Vanilla Cream Sauce with 5-10 drops of NuNaturals Stevia to taste. You can also make the Cream Sauce with a second cup of coconut meat instead of using cashews.
