Buddha Balls

A delicious health snack you can store away in the freezer

I discovered these little gems in a tiny little vegetarian cafe in a local town nearby and asked them if they would be so kind as to share the recipe with me. I've since made these in bunches many times over, freezing them and pulling a few out at a time as a convenient and fulfilling healthy snack to take on the road.

Once you've made them once or twice, you will feel you can start to experiment with other combinations of ingredients.  Roll them in coconut, or cocoa or leave them plain. Delicious and healthy at the same time!


  • 2 cups plain almonds, finely ground
  • ½ cup carob powder or cocoa
  • 1/3 tsp Himalayan salt
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • ¾ cup agave nectar or brown rice syrup
  • 2 Tbl olive oil


Add a handful each of a couple of ingredients, whatever your heart desires such as:

  • Ground pumpkin seeds
  • Hemp seeds
  • Raisin
