Technically I’m not “here” right now. I scheduled this post before I left just because well, I couldn’t go an entire week without sharing this recipe with you.
At this very moment I’ve probably just woken up to the sound of Tibetan chimes and am preparing for a quick jog around the lake before heading to our 2 hour early morning yoga session.
Gosh, I needed this.
And you know what you need right now?
These flax balls.
They aren’t your averages balls, they’re better.
I’m not sure. All I know is that I can’t stop eating them and that’s a pretty good indication that there’s just something about the recipe. Sorta like the time I made this bean salad. I still make it once a week.
I could probably go as far as saying that these flax balls are better than these balls.
Oh yes, I said it… but I may change my mind later, kay?
I swear you will be a happier person with these in your life. The fiber, the raw power, saving money on store-bought snacks… what’s not to love?
- Place the almonds in the bowl of your food processor and pulse using the “S” blade until chunky. About three 5 second pulses.
- Add remaining ingredients and process until the fruit crumbles and mashes with the nuts.
- Check to see if mixture is done by pressing it together. If it sticks and there are no date pieces, get ready to roll!
- Roll mixture into 18 golf-ball-sized balls. Wrap in plastic wrap for quick access for lunches, or place in a bag and store in the freezer.

I whipped these up on Thursday as I was packing up my things for my vacation. I’d realized I didn’t have enough LARABARs to get me through the week, so I just started throwing stuff in the food processor until I liked the taste of the mix.
The recipe makes 18 so you can make, throw in a bag, freeze, and nibble on for weeks to come.
My plan: if no one wants to be my meditation partner, I’ll bribe them with these.
I hoped you enjoyed Kristina’s blackberry crackers post. I have a couple more fabulous ladies to introduce you to before I’m back on Wednesday.
I can’t wait to come back and share my journey with you all!
See you soon
