The star of the show is usually dried fruits, often dates. I generally don’t use a recipe as I make it up based on what I have. Today I made up a slightly less healthy version as it contained cake but nevertheless mostly healthy and definitely tasty.
Today’s efforts produced a very yummy ball. I had lamington as my base idea when I started. Luckily I had some frozen plain cake cut into square pieces in my freezer.
Here’s the recipe:
Into a blender/food processor put:
2/3 cup approx plain cake (GF would work) If you didn’t have cake you could try a weetbix or 4 plain sweet biscuits
1/4 cup desicated coconut
2 T almond meal (be generous) if you’re wanting Nut Free omit the almond meal
2 T rolled oats (omit if GF)
2 T cocoa
Blitz into a fine meal
Now add aporox 1/4 cup maple syrup
2 t vanilla
Blitz until it’s sticky enough to form a ball adding more maple syrup (or water if you prefer)
Roll into bite sized balls and roll around in coconut. Mine made 21 balls.
For an adult’s only version add 2 teaspoons of instant coffee for a Mocha energy ball with a caffeine hit.
Nom nom nom.
