Add almonds, walnuts and salt into food processor. Process until a very fine, sand-like consistency is achieved.
Add in 2 Tablespoons raw cacao powder and remaining ingredients. Process again, until mixture begins to thicken and stick together.

Pour mixture into a mixing bowl. Shape mixture with your hands into golf ball sized balls.
Add ¼ cup raw cacao powder in a shallow bowl. Roll individual balls in powder to coat. Serve immediately. Leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator for up to a week. Enjoy!
