Almond Coconut Protein Balls
1 cup raw almonds
1 cup cottage cheese
1 heaping tablespoon maple syrup
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup unsweetened coconut
1/4 cup dried cherries, chopped (I used cranberries)
In a food processor, grind the raw almonds until a coarse powder forms. Add the cottage cheese, maple syrup, and cinnamon and mix until a paste forms.
In a separate bowl, mix the rolled oats, coconut, and cherries.
Add the wet ingredients to the bowl with the dry ingredients and mix well.
Form into 18 balls and place on a wooden cutting board lined with parchment paper.
Place in the freezer for at least 30 minutes.
