This is one of those recipes that I've been saying I'm going to try out forever, but was, for some reason, intimidated. I researched a number of recipes online, decided what flavor combination I wanted, gathered the ingredients, and then never made them!
Then, the other morning, with the Verizon guy here, Richie still palling around the apartment, Bar pulling at my pant leg, I decided it would be a good time to try. And they turned out AWESOME! They were actually super quick and easy to make (though a bit messy). No bake! No dehydrate! Just refrigerate! These will definitely be on the menu more regularly and I'll experiment soon with other flavor options (I'm thinking a chocolate nutbutter option...!).
Here's how I did it:
Line a sheet pan with parchment or wax paper.
In a bowl combine and whisk:
-1c amaranth (or other nutty/neutral flour...I had some raw amaranth flour around so I grabbed that)
-1c oat flour (you can also grind oats in a food processor if you don't have flour on hand)
-3/4c coconut flour
-1/2tsp sea salt
-5tbsp raw agave
-1/3c room temp coconut oil
And mix until it forms a dough then set aside.
In a food processor (I use my Nutribullet) process until fine:
1/2c coconut nectar/sugar
Put the cinnamon sugar into a small bowl.
Take about 2 tablespoons of dough in your hand and roll into a ball.
Place the ball into the cinnamon sugar bowl and roll it around until it is totally covered.
Place it on the sheet pan and start over.
Should make 15 balls.
Refrigerate for at least 3 hours.
These are sugar free, gluten free (if you use gluten free oats), vegan, and raw. They are a totally healthy and delicious snack or dessert. Richie love loved them and so did the kids!!
