Zuzana's Power Balls-YUM!
Who’s got the balls to give this recipe try? :) haha. I did, and I couldn’t believe how good these Power balls turned out. The Power balls are amazing to have for breakfast or as a snack espeacially if you are in a hurry, and need just something you can grab and go. I also found out that you can use them as a gift (if you give them a nice wrap) or even a bribe :) You’ll see… Once you let someone taste your balls, you will never be forgotten. I promise.
You will need 1 cup of oats.
Ground the oats into an oatmeal/oatflower.
Mix the oatmeal with 2 cups of almond meal.
Add 3 full teaspoons of baking powder.
Mix it well and add about 4 tblsp of honey.
Add 4 table spoons of coconut oil – you can melt it in a pot before you pour it into the bowl so that it’s easier to mix it in.
Cook 1 cup of carrots until they turn soft and mash them just like you would mash potatoes. You can also use a food processor.
Add the mashed carrots into the mixture in the bowl and mix it all well together to create a dough for the balls. The doughshould be moist and little bit sticky – if you find it too soft you can always add little more almond meal. The amount of dough you need for one ball depends on how big you want them to be. I made about 28 balls.
You can use crashed almonds or finely crushed pecans (both is delicious)
Roll the ball in crushed nuts to cover the entire surface.
Done. Just place the balls in a non stick baking sheet and bake them in the oven for about 25 minutes on 350F.P.S. The balls will be very tender when you take them out of the oven so don’t touch them. Let them cool down for 10 – 15 minutes and then put the entire sheet with all of your balls into the fridge. They will become more solid and won’t fall apart when you bite them
