1 cup tahini
1 cup almond butter (or nut butter of your choice)
1 cup honey (more/less to taste)
1-2 Tbl garam masala spice blend (or a blend of warming spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger & cardamom)
1/2 oz cocoa powder
1 oz ashwagandha powder
1 oz oat straw powder
1/2 oz nettle powder
1/2 - 1 cup chopped walnuts/almonds (to taste)
Shredded coconut (optional)
Combine tahini, almond butter, & honey.
In a separate bowl, combine all powders & garam masala spice blend.
Slowly mix the powders into the honey/nut butter mix, making sure to mix thoroughly. The mixture should be easy to roll into a ball. Not too sticky or dry.
Mix in at least half of the chopped nuts. If using shredded coconut use all of the chopped nuts.
Roll mixture by hand into little balls approx. the size of a golf ball or smaller.
Roll each ball in the reserved chopped nuts, or shredded coconut (if using) to coat the outside.
Keep in a storage container in the fridge for up to 1 month.
