Total Time7 mins
Servings: 9 balls
Whisk together milk, espresso powder, maple syrup (or stevia) and vanilla in a small bowl.
Add almonds, coconut oil, and espresso mixture to a food processor and blend 30-60 seconds until a loose ball of dough forms.
Taste and adjust flavor and sweetness, if needed (adding a 1/2 tsp more espresso powder, or a drizzle of maple syrup, and blend again to incorporate)
Use a cookie scoop to form balls. Roll smooth with your hands.
Freeze for about 5 minutes to firm up, if desired. Enjoy!
