In a mixing bowl, combine the oats, cherries, almonds, coconut, caao nibs, [and crystallized ginger] and set aside. In a medium pot, combine the honey, almond butter, coconut oil, sea salt and cinnamon. Warm over a medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture is hot. Pour in the dry ingredients, turn off the heat, and stir to thoroughly combine everything. Cool down in the fridge for about a 30-40 minutes.

Use a tablespoon to make round balls. Press them together very firmly to help them hold their shape. Store in the fridge.
