Following our trials and tribulations as we attempt to remove all grains, many starchy vegetables and most sugars from our diet while maintaining our love of good food! We strive to make all of our recipes GAPS and/or SCD compliant. Note: We didn't know about "Grain-Free Gourmet" when we chose our name. We are not affiliated with those good folks.

1 c. coconut butter
1 tsp coconut oil
1-2 T honey (or to taste)
1 tsp vanilla
splash of almond extract
pinch of salt
1 handfull of raisins
1 handfull of nuts
Put the coconut butter into a food processor (it will be chunky), and pulse briefly to break the chunks into smaller pieces. Heat the coconut oil just enough to melt and add it to the food processor while on. Add the honey, salt and extract.
Put mixture into a medium bowl, add in the raisins and nuts, and mix together by hand. Form balls about 1.5 inches across, squish somewhat, and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Place the baking sheet in the refrigerator and chill for at least 15 minutes. Store in the fridge.
NOTE- any combination of nuts and dried fruits would work, or of course all nuts or all fruit would be good too. Also, other flavor extracts can be used to provide some variety.
