  1. Add the raw nuts to food processor and process until finely chopped. Add the remaining ingredients to the food processor and process until a thick paste has formed. The dough should be sticky. 

  2. Roll the fat ball mixture into 16 to 20 balls. Store in a zip lock bag in the refrigerator or freezer (balls thaw quickly, so I store mine in the freezer).

Recipe Notes

*I used 1 cup raw almonds and ½ cup macadamia nuts, but you can use any combination of your favorite nuts.


**I used sunflower seed butter. To keep these paleo, avoid using peanut butter


***Use 2 to 3 tablespoons zero-sugar sweetener such as Erythritolmonk fruit sweetener, or xylitol or a few drops of liquid Stevia to make these a completely sugar-free ball for a ketogenic diet. If you aren't on a ketogenic diet, you can increase the amount of pure maple syrup to up to 5 tablespoons for a sweeter ball.
