The dough should be sticky when pressed between your fingers

If it’s not sticky enough to shape into balls, add a small amount of water (a teaspoon at a time) and process until it comes together

Shape dough into small balls (about 16) and freeze for 20 minutes or so until firm

When I needed a little pre or post workout snack, or even if I was craving something sweet after dinner, I would have one or two of these.  They are the perfect amount sweet and fulfilling bite.

Stay hungry…
