Almond Oat Balls

Leslie's Special Raw Almond-Oat Balls
3 c. rolled oats
1/2 c. pepitas (pumpkin seeds), raw
1/2 c. raisins
1/4 c. raw sunflower seeds
1.5 t. cinnamon
3/4 c. almond butter (you can get away with only 1/2 c.)
1/3 c. + 1T. brown rice syrup
2 T. barley malt syrup
1.5 t. vanilla
1/4 c. coconut, shredded

Method: Take about 1/3c. rolled oats and 1/4c. pepitas and grind them in a food processor, blender, or use a hammer to turn into a powder. Set aside on a small plate. Forget about this for a while... Combine dry ingredients. Stir. Add from almond butter down to the end of the list. Stir it all together. Grab a shallow bowl and fill with water. Wet fingers and palms and spoon batterfuls into hands and form 1-inch balls. Coat with oat/pepita powdery mixture. Place on cookie sheet and freeze 20 minutes. Take out and store in the fridge. Enjoy.
