Raw Apricot Balls

In raw balls you can pretty much “hide” anything-  nuts, dried fruits and natural flavors like almond or pure vanilla extract). Whatever combination you come up with, make sure you add some dates for sweetness.

Raw, however, doesn´t mean non activated. make sure you only use activated nuts and seeds (not sure what I mean? Read this post http://plantbasedhappy.com/?p=6272)

These balls are the perfect snack. They’re sweet, they’re filling, and they feel like a little indulgence, even if they’re made from some pretty wholesome stuff.
