  3. After your powdered herbs are evenly mixed in, add some ingredients for texture and added flavor and stir until the mixture gets to a formable consistency (remember that you want to be able to form balls).
  4. Use your hands to roll pieces of the mix. Once the balls are formed, feel free to roll them in some shredded coconut, hemp seeds, cocoa powder, or even dip them in some bittersweet dipping chocolate.
  5. Place each ball in a container for storage.  In the fridge, these treats will last a few months, so if you prefer making a bigger batch, go for it!
