1/2 cup cacao/carob (powdered or chopped, unsweetened)
1 tsp salt
2 tsp vanilla
2 tsp cinnamon

Wifey made a version of this a few weeks ago that she got from Chicktrest but I thought I would try a slightly different version, one that has probably already been done before and posted somewhere on the Interscreen.

I thought about calling these Caveman Balls or Grok Balls but they already kinda don’t look appetizing. Adding scatology would just make it worse.

The ones I made here are almond butter with chopped almonds, so they are very…almondy. The almonds I had were already salted so I didn’t add any salt. I also had some cacao chips and coconut that were sweetened so I did maybe 1/6 a cup of honey.

Fun fact: the little beige nub near the top center of the photograph is the leg of a Chia pet.
