These delicious, festive nut balls are a fantastic way to spruce up your holiday menu.

They are super easy to make, and use only the most natural of ingredients! These can easily take the place of a sugar laden pecan pie – it has all of the elements that make them a go to recipe.

I make them bite size (about one inch) because they are rich and decadent, and just a few will most likely be enough (that’s what I keep telling myself).  One batch usually makes about a dozen of these beauties, but they don’t last long in my house, so I usually make 2 batches at once, especially if we are having company over.

This recipe is gluten free, grain free and vegan. ENJOY!
