Directions
  1. In a medium mixing bowl, combine butter, almond butter, vanilla extract, salt,  and cinnamon. In a high-powered blender or coffee grinder, mix xylitol until it becomes a fine powder. Measure the powder and add it to the mixture. Blend all ingredients together on medium speed until well incorporated. 

  2. Use a small scoop, or form balls in your hand and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Freeze for about 20 minutes.

  3. In the meantime, mix the coating. Put coconut oil in a small pan and melt. Add the rest of the ingredients (adding stevia a little at a time) and stir well. Let cool. 

  4. Remove baking sheet from freezer and dip the balls in the coating. Put back in freezer for about 5 minutes. Repeat 2 more times to make a nice coating. Store in freezer.

Recipe Notes

You can replace the butter with coconut oil to make it dairy-free, but then you may want to refrigerate the filling for a bit or it will be too runny to scoop into balls.
