Coco-Almond-Butter Balls

No bake peanut butter balls can be a fun snack, but they don’t fall under the “paleo approved” category. This recipe is my primal take on such a snack. They are a great source of fat with the addition of coconut butter and seeds, and they offer an antioxidant punch by adding cacao nibs (such as Navitas Naturals brand). Keep a batch in the fridge or freezer for easy to grab afternoon pick-me-ups, or as a tasty treat if you choose to add dark chocolate chips/bits.
