These things are delicious! Even the pickiest food critics in my house are eating them!

I've tried them with both 1 cup of almonds and 1 cup of pecans and they are good both ways.

I made these and the family liked them. I couldn't get my coconut to stick to the balls (I think I bought the wrong coconut) so I added more almond butter and some honey to make them "stickier". I ended up rolling them in honey before rolling them in coconut to get more coconut on them.

I decided to bake a few with some other cookies I had going in the oven and we liked them better once they were baked 9 minutes at 350F.

Thanks for sharing your recipe!!

Can these be frozen?

My food processor will not process nuts to a fine meal, they just spin around and around. What kind of machine are you using?

I just made these today. They are SO simple and so delicious! I liked them so much I blogged about them! http://thesacc.wordpress.com/2011/02/22/raw-energy-balls-in-less-than-5-minutes/

These are a staple in my household :) Especially good for a late-night sweet that won't keep me awake. LAM

These little snacks are sweet and delicious! I just finished making them. Can't wait to test them on my children when they return from school. I think they will make great lunch treats. :~)

I just made the raw energy balls! They are so delicious & will satisfy that nagging sweet tooth. Thank You!

we've just got into making these little beauties too! Agave, goji berries, anything is welcome in the blender. Terrific stuff all.

Oh, love it! I do a similar treat that is more like dessert, with walnuts, dates, raw cacao and agave. These look more like great snacks for anytime. I love that you put cinnamon and cardamon in them - two of my favorite spices.

thanks so much!

These little yummies have been a staple in our house for years! Don't fret if you don't have the exact ingredients-they are fun with all sorts of dried fruits and nuts.
Thanks Ali!!!

I am so glad you started this blog! You can bet I will be checking here regularly for new recipes. They are all very addicting.

Hi Ali and Tom. I'm so glad you started this blog. I'm inspired already, just about to make raw energy balls... Hope you all are well - we miss you - Love, April and the gang
