Coconut Almond Balls
 
Right now I am going through a Candida cleanse, which essentially means no sugar for a long time. You see sugar feeds Candida, and even just a little bit can jump start it's growth again. So I've been really good and not cheating. But I do miss having a little sweet treat every now and then. This recipe helps satisfy that sweet tooth of mine while still being sugar free and gluten free.

Notes
I love almond butter! I'm kinda addicted to it to tell the truth. It's my favorite any time snack. Any time you are hungry have some almond butter and it will take the edge off. Why because almonds have a great balance of fiber, protein, and fat. Almonds promote heart health and help to lower cholesterol. They are also packed with antioxidant Vitamin E, the anti-aging nutrient. And there have been countless studies that show almonds effectiveness in helping you lose weight. Coconut is one of those miracle foods that has so many good qualities that I couldn't possibly list them all here. It's an anti-viral, anti-fungal, and anti-bacterial. Coconut is packed full of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Overall an amazing boost to your immune system!
