Ingredients

  • 2/3 cups gluten-free rolled oats
  • ½ cup raw almonds, sprouted if available
  • 2 tablespoons flax seeds
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 7 pitted dates
  • 2 tablespoons acai or pomegranate powder
  • ½ cup fresh blueberries, plus more for rolling (optional)
  • ¼ cup chia seeds, plus about 1/2 cup more for coating

Directions

  1. In the bowl of a food processor, combine the oats, almonds, flax and salt. Pulse to finely chop, using about six 1-second pulses.
  2. Add the dates and acai or pomegranate powder and process for 3 to 4 seconds to blend. Add the blueberries and ¼ cup chia seeds and pulse until mixture is moist but crumbly.
  3. Scoop up teaspoons of the blueberry mixture and roll into balls. Insert a whole blueberry into the mixture when rolling, if desired. Roll balls in additional chia seeds. Transfer to a plate and refrigerate for at least 20 minutes to harden.
