Almond Butter Balls

Almond Butter Balls_600f

One of my favorite recipes is No Bake Almond Butter Bars.  This time I wanted to go closer to the original recipe that uses graham cracker crumbs and use some of my Homemade Grain-Free Graham Cracker Crumbs.  If you make up the graham cracker crumbs ahead of time you can easily whip the Almond Butter Balls, which will be perfect for your next holiday gathering.

I have to admit, I dipped most of them in chocolate, but I also saved a few without chocolate and they were just as good.  I love the combination of the Homemade Graham Cracker Crumbs with the creamy almond butter.

    I am fairly new to all this and have a question about the dark chocolate called for in the Almond Butter Balls. What exactly do you mean by this?

    • Karen LowCarbOneDay says

      You can use whatever chocolate you prefer some people like an 85% chocolate (Alter Eco, Lindt, Lily’s are some brands for low carb) and some people like a dairy free chocolate that has more sweetness (Enjoy Life paleo). Chose the chocolate that works best for where you are at on your journey.
