This is a simple, luxurious, and decadent treat to enjoy for the holidays- or any day really! But not to worry…they are still clean and healthy! They are super easy to make and all you need is a good food processor and your hands to roll them. To dress them up, roll them in crushed pistachios and goji berries. If you want to add some sparkle to them, you can even roll them in raw cane sugar.
