Directions

Combine coconut oil, honey and nut butter, cacao powder and cinnamon in a small pot. On medium heat, melt ingredients together. Remove from heat as soon as the mixture has melted together. Do not overheat or these will not work. Add millet to the mixture and stir to combine. Let the mixture cool on the counter for 15 minutes before rolling into golf-sized balls. Roll balls in honey and coat balls with a mixture of coconut flakes and matcha powder or almond meal if desired. Store in the refrigerator for up to 5 days, or make a big batch for the freezer.
