Cinnamon Girls recipe

This recipe is from the book "RAWvolution" by Matt Amsden pg. 166

Cinnamon Girls

Sweet, freshly ground cinnamon-and-almond tortes with whole raisins, sweetened with raw agave nectar.

Makes about 20 balls

2 c. raw almonds, finely ground in a food processor
1/3 c. cinnamon 
1/3 tsp. sea salt (opt.)
1 c. raisins
3/4 c. agave nectar
2 T. olive oil

In a medium mixing bowl, combine the almonds, cinnamon, salt, if using, and raisins, and stir until the dry ingredients are mixed well. Add the agave nectar and olive oil to the bowl, and mix until a dough like consistency is reached. Using your hands, roll the mixture into ping-pong-sized balls. Serve as is, or cover and freeze before serving until thoroughly chilled for a more solid consistency.

Julie's notes: These are addictive and delicious!!
