These balls are Paleo, Gluten Free, Grain Free and Dairy free. AMAZING!!
My son loves nut balls, he’s obsessed with them. He has one every day before bed, it’s how he gets his fat in cause he doesn’t care for any form of milk. Well, I thought I would make some more for him, but momma bear didn’t feel like whipping up a thousand different nut/seed/dried fruit combos this time round and I also felt like more of a dessert so I thought to myself. “Wouldn’t it be fantastic if I could make some cookie dough balls…?” I made a recipe a while back that used Sunwarrior protein powder, they were pretty awesome, however, lately I haven’t been able to afford protein powder so I do without.
In my head I wanted to look up a recipe, cause I always look up recipes, then I thought “oh whatever, just throw stuff together and see what happens!” I was fairly confident in my cooking abilities, so off I went.
These are the ingredients I used:
1 TBSP Honey
2 TSP of Sunbutter (almond or cashew work too)
Small scoop of carob chips
1 tsp of PB2(Omit this if you want it completely Paleo)
1 tsp of cocao (optional)
1-2 TBSP of almond butter, may have to vary here to get the texture you want.
Mix altogether and roll with your hands into small balls. Place in fridge, and devour later! Makes approx 6-8 balls depending on how large/small theyare. What I would like to do down the road is make them into cookies, but that will have to be tweaked and altered.
The dark ones are the chocolate ones. 🙂
If you would like to make this more of a “Dessert”, melt chocolate and cover them in chocolate – place in fridge. They would be amazing!
I gave them to my parents tonight, and they loved them! My coworker thought I was eating cookie dough! I think it’s a win recipe. 🙂 Let me know your feedback if you make them! 🙂
