1 tablespoon almond butter

1 tablespoon chia seeds

1¼ cup whole grain oats

¼ cup pistachios, shelled

⅓ cup sliced almonds

¾ cup dried cranberries

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions:

In a food processor with a metal blade, add dates, agave, almond butter, chia seeds, oats, pistachios, almonds, cranberries, and vanilla. Pulse until roughly chopped, but not pulverized.


Place oat mixture into a medium mixing bowl. Add white chocolate chips and stir together. Place in refrigerator and chill for about 20 minutes.


Once chilled, use your hands to shape into 1-inch balls, pressing your hands firmly together to shape. A touch more almond butter can be added to help shape and hold, if necessary. Repeat with remaining mixture.
