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)

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.
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.
