Oh my goodness… I may have just created my easiest and most awesome recipe yet. And it was all in 5 minutes this morning while getting ready for work!
Cinnamon Raisin Almond Balls
(makes 6 balls or 3 bars)
- 1/2 C almonds
- 1/2 C raisins
- 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
Rinse the raisins and almonds with some water. Toss them in a food processor with the cinnamon. Whirl away!
Then, form them into ball or bar shapes!
Mmmmm… I can’t believe how easy, quick, and amazing these are!! The raisins make them perfectly sticky (without having to deal with the major stickiness of dates!!) and the flavor goes beautifully with the almonds and cinnamon :)
Way more fun to eat than plain old almonds and raisins ;)
I can already tell these are going to become a major staple for me — such a perfect portable on the go snack and SO quick to make! Speaking of… I just threw a couple in a baggie and now I’m off to work!
Have a great day, friends! :) It’s supposed to be 90 degrees here in D.C. today — wtf?! Apparently we skipped spring and went straight to summer!
