In a food processor combine raisins and walnuts. Process until they form a sticky ball.
Coat hands with oil and roll mixture into balls the size of large marbles, then coat with sliced almonds.
Cover and refrigerate for up to 3 days.

Did you know?
Walnuts were the first whole food to receive a health claim from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration: "Supportive but not conclusive research shows that eating 1.5 ounces of walnuts per day, as part of a low saturated fat and low cholesterol diet, and not resulting in increased caloric intake, may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease."
Almonds are extremely nutrient-rich; a handful (one-ounce or about 23 almonds) is an excellent source of vitamin E. While all nuts are valued for the vitamin E content, none has close to the amount - nearly 40 percent of the Daily Value - that almonds do.
