New Year fosters ambitious resolutions and eating less sweets always lands on my list. Easy to say, harder to do, especially if you’re sugar addict like I am. But limiting sugar doesn’t mean you can only have a square of chocolate once in a month. With smart recipes you can enjoy sweet taste more often not giving up on staying fit. Try healthy sweets with my homemade power balls recipe! I prepared power balls in vegan version but you can easily replace coconut milk with regular one or add some honey for more sweetness.
Homemade power balls – ingredients
– walnuts, almonds, raisins, cranberries, sunflower seeds, figs – simply all nuts, seeds and dried fruits you like and have around in your kitchen
– 2 table spoons of oat flakes for more meaty composition
– coconut milk to ease mixing the ingredients
– a few pinches of cocoa
– high-power blender
– coconut shrims for the balls coating
Homemade power balls – instructions
Cut all the dry ingredients into small pieces and place it in a bowl.
Add coconut milk and mix the ingredients. I use hand blender by Bosh, with a power of 750 Watt. It handles hard nuts quite well.
When your ingredients change into a smooth mass form a round balls out of it. Then cover the balls in coconut, simply rolling it in coconut shrims.
This is it – bon appetit!
Homemade power balls taste best after few hours in the fridge.
