Almond Butter Balls

Lilla’s Notes: I LOVE these almond butter balls! I use Trader Joe’s crunchy, raw almond butter! I also use a lot more flaxmeal than the recipe calls for. You can buy organic flaxmeal on the oatmeal isle of Whole Foods or Earth Fare. Usually it’s made by Bob’s Red Mill-you need the ground kind. I also like to add chopped walnuts for an extra crunch! I love to put these in the freezer and pop them out a few minutes before I want to eat one. They remind me of an ice cream Snicker’s bar and days spent at the pool as a kid. We used to run up my dad’s tab at the snack bar with our sugary purchases….Tips: I heat the chocolate chips on low and haven’t had a problem. You need to salt the almond butter balls while the chocolate is still wet. I salt a few then dip some more. Also, freezing the balls before you dip them in chocolate helps them hold together. I use a fork to roll the ball in the chocolate (two forks on either side…not one through the ball).
