These gluten free almond chia butter balls are a treat! What I love about these is, if you are wanting a healthier (not so much sugar version) roll them in the coconut option. If you are looking for a fun dessert, choose door number 2 and roll them in coconut sugar, either way you will win over your kids. These are so fun to make together, because they can be sticky, there is stirring, rolling and no baking! Plus you can eat them as soon as they are done, or throw them in the fridge or freezer for later. The magic ingredient in these yummy treats, is the chia. Here are 5 reasons to eat more chia.
