There is something magical about an almond. The flavor, crunchy texture and satisfaction that I get from eating almonds are small pleasures that make life worthwhile.
Best of all, almonds are low in saturated fat, satisfy your appetite and are the only nut that leave an alkaline residue in your bloodstream. I double this recipe and then freeze the Raw Almond Truffles in the freezer and enjoy them whenever I am craving a sweet treat.
Combine almonds, cinnamon, salt and raisins and stir until the dry ingredients are mixed well.
I like to put everything in the food processor for a few seconds until the ingredients get together.
Add the honey and olive oil to the bowl, and mix until a dough-like consistency is reached. Using your hands, roll the mixture into small balls.
Serve as it, or cover and freeze before serving. (I always make a double batch and keep it in the freezer. It is a great healthy treat whenever you want something to satisfy that sweet tooth. My kids also loves them!)
