Instructions

  1. Combine all ingredients together in a large bowl until mixture just comes together.
  2. Using your hands, scoop out ~2 tablespoons of the mixture and shape together, about the size of a golf ball. Or if you have a small cookie scoop, form mixture into a ball and set aside. Each recipe yields 12 balls.
  3. If mixture becomes dry or crumbly, add 1 teaspoon liquid at a time until mixture comes together. Liquid can be dairy or non-dairy milk.
  4. Set rolled balls aside. Keep refrigerated until ready to use.
