Cranberry Almond Balls

Cranberry Almond Balls-Mimi's Fit Foods

Here is a fantastic snack idea!  It’s SUPER simple and tastes so yummy.  A typical snack for me is a handful of almonds paired with fruit.  Well, this is exactly that snack but in a slightly different form.  And, I think it tastes better this way because you get a little taste of almond with a little taste of fruit in EVERY bite.  The cranberries are sweet on their own and they compliment the almonds so well.  If, for some reason, your mixture doesn’t get tacky enough to form into balls, just add a smidge of Agave Nectar to the mixture and it’ll get the job done.  You can easily double the recipe if you have more mouths to feed.

I hope you can enjoy this not-so-boring snack.  I’ll have more variations coming in the near future.
