They are the perfect on the go snacks or sweet treats for kids lunch boxes. You can make a huge batch and just store them in the fridge to guarantee you will always have healthy snacks on hand. "I loved playing around with different coatings as they add textures and a variety of flavours but even “naked” they will still be totally delicious" - Happy Skin Kitchen.
To add extra goodness I have used the Udo’s Choice Untimate Oil Blend which is a blend of flax, sesame and sunflower seed oils as well as oils from evening primrose, rice germ, oat germ and coconut. This oil is rich in omega 3-6-9 and is completely suitable for vegans.
Serving size: Makes about 10-12 balls depending on the size
- 1 cup of ground almonds
- 1 cup of oat flour
- 2 tablespoons of rice malt syrup
- 3 tablespoons of runny peanut butter
- 2 tablespoons of raw cacao powder
- 1 tablespoon of Udo’s Choice Ultimate Oil
- A pinch of sea or pink Himalayan salt
For the coating:
You can leave the balls as they are or if you want to add a bit of crunch and extra flavour i like to coat them in a mix of the following:
- Shredded Coconut
- Cacao Nibs
- Raspberry Powder
In a bowl, mix together the ground almond, raw cacao, salt and the oat flour. Give it a good mix and add in the peanut butter, rice malt syrup and Udo's Choice Ultimate Oil Blend. Mix everything together with a spoon until you have a sticky mixture. Roll the mixture into balls and coat them in the shredded coconut/cacao nibs/ raspberry powder.
Place the balls in the fridge to set for at least 1 hour and enjoy! Store them in the fridge or freezer in an airtight container. In the freezer they will last for months!
