Spinach Balls

These lovely spinach balls are inspired by the cooked ones my mom used to make. I served these to non-raw foodies, and they loved them. No one believed me that they were not cooked.

Spinach Balls
3 Tbsp ground flax seed
7 Tbsp water
1/2 cup almonds, soaked for 6-8 hours
2 cups chopped spinach (fresh or frozen)
